Maryland Schools Investigated Over Education Spending

A federal audit is looking into how Maryland public schools spent federal stimulus money.

A U.S. Department of Education audit found Baltimore City Schools spent $4,352 on a pair of dinner cruises; $1,575 catering school events and $1,336 for theater tickets, according to the Associated Press.

Prince George’s County Schools also were criticized for similar spending.

An investigation into the spending began Wednesday by Maryland Republicans. The audit was released in January.

A spokesman for the Maryland State Department of Education say they are working to resolve the issues raised by the audit and the department agrees with the finding.
