No Check Left Behind

as the fourth Chicago Public School Official is caught stealing thousands from the coffers.

Mirna Diaz Ortiz, 54, of the 4400 block of West Hutchinson St. was charged with two counts of theft between $10,000 and $100,000, 36 counts of forgery and four counts of official misconduct, according to Assistant Cook County State's Atty. Russell Baker. If convicted, she faces up to 5 years in prison.

Yet they can spend thousands busing students for lobbying while at the same time crying they don't have enough money to educate them. Maybe if they spent more time teaching instead of lining their pockets and pushing political agendas, Chicago would have a higher than 51% graduation rate.

But that would make sense.
