RSD loses 180 computers

After three years in office, the Jindal administration admits that more than $23 million worth of state property has gone missing.

As this report from FOX8 investigative reporter Lee Zurik reveals, one chunk of that total was ripped from the state Recovery School District in New Orleans:
State records show on September 10, 2009, the Recovery School District
purchased 180 computers worth $746 each. About one year later, those same
records show all 180 computers are missing. They were purchased for $134,000.

Maybe the loss can help explain why the per-pupil expenditure in the RSD is nearly twice that of the state's other public schools.
