An investigation into enrollment and attendance discrepancies in Maryland public schools has found nearly $23.4 million in state and local funding was misallocated over a five-year period. The Office of the Inspector General for Education on Tuesday released findings of separate investigative audits into the Maryland State Department of Education and four school systems including Baltimore City. From 2016 to 2021, investigators discovered nearly 3,000 instances across the state of students who were improperly counted as eligible for state and local aid distributed to school systems.
