Roughly one thousand school teachers in the District of Columbia are employed throughout the capital despite having no valid license, reports NBC Washington.
New documents obtained under the Freedom of Information Act reveal the public school disaster and raise serious questions over the safety and security of school children across Washington.
“The unlicensed include new and veteran teachers, including at least four members of the elite Chancellor’s Teacher’s Cabinet, which advises top school district officials on policies and meets monthly with the schools chancellor,” writes NBC.
“OSSE is working with DCPS on a corrective action plan to help DCPS fully comply with local teacher licensing regulations and ensure that current and future DCPS educators obtain and maintain the proper credentials,” said a spokesperson with the local government. “Once the corrective action plan is complete, OSSE will monitor their progress against the plan to determine what other actions might be necessary.”

“He said to me, ‘I want you to make a payment to the Nation of Islam for Saviours’ Day,’ ” Darryl Ross, the treasurer, told the Post. “So I went on the website to get the information I needed in order to make the payment.”
