The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that errors in a funding request and a possible conflict of interest have put the Atlanta Schools’ eligibility for 2004-05 eRate funding in jeopardy. Atlanta reportedly is looking for $17.5 million in eRate funds, but the district’s application is said to have contained errors and questionable funding requests. Due to administrative errors, Atlanta has gone without eRate money since 2001, putting the burden of phone and computer costs on taxpayers’ shoulders. (Note: This site requires registration.)
