Balancing Education Oversight and Freedom
Across the country, policymakers grapple with the delicate balance between giving schools increased flexibility and guarding against misuse of funds. Staying compliant with federal and state regulations can be a complex and daunting endeavor. In rare instances, the unimaginable occurs: those entrusted with the education of students engage in illegal acts. In the process, the reputations of high-integrity and well-performing schools become tarnished.
