Legislative Auditor's Report

Possibly the most productive action for education at the past Legislative session was delivery by the Legislative Auditor of two reports -- the LIAJTAG21ENT and FINANCIAL audits of the Department of Education. The Management audit was released first and, as one newspaper writer summed it up, "whatever you suspect is wrong with the public school system, it's covered by the Legislative Auditor office report on the management of the State Department of Education."

The Financial audit, which followed in 4 weeks, advances recommendations on how the Department should proceed to improve its financial accounting and internal control system. each local League will receive copies of both documents.

The management audit provides information in areas that were beyond our resources to investigate or evaluate previously. Te do not imply the document should be accepted unquestionably, but it is an excellent tool for study, especially in the areas of curriculum and personnel. Both audits might also be reviewed under the “equal opportunity" position of the LWV.
