Education Next article on school lunch fraud
Posted by David N. Bass at 09:48 AM
The editors at the Hoover Institution's Education Next were kind enough to let me contribute an article on school lunch fraud to the winter 2010 issue. The article is also available online here.
While doing research for the article, I went through the [ardently] laborious process of collecting F&R lunch verifications from the nation's 10 largest school districts for the 2007-2008 school year.
Those verifications, taken from a 3 percent sample pool of applicants, showed that school officials are likely winking at some significant fraud.
