Fioretti Statement on CPS Fraudulent Billing Scandal

CHICAGO, IL – The following is a statement from mayoral candidate Bob Fioretti on the most recent scandal at CPS, as reported in the Chicago Tribune:

The crisis in confidence at CPS is reaching epic proportions.  Fraud and abuse of money for our students and teachers is beyond acceptable, but it has become alarmingly routine. This scandal is another example of why we need an elected school board – something I’ve called for consistently since I’ve been in office.
