The New York Times today posted an in-depth article about Baltimore County Public Schools’ relationship with tech companies, and in particular focused on former Superintendent Dallas Dance. The article shows what appears to be a “pay-to-play” system in which junkets and other benefits were bestowed upon school officials in return for lucrative contracts.
The Times’ story comes on the heels of The Baltimore Sun’s recent investigation into Dance’s extensive travel schedule and reports that prosecutors are investigating his relationship with companies that did business with BCPS.
Dance unexpectedly resigned in April after signing on for another four-year term as superintendent.
