From The Miami Herald: A Miami-Dade (Fla.) school district administrator who oversees special-education programs allegedly used public money intended for disabled children to pay for her own children's tuition at a private school in Broward County. Investigators say Deborah Swirsky-Nuñez is charged with taking $19,000 in John McKay scholarship money, which is funded by the state to help offset the costs of private schools for children with disabilities, and using the money to pay for her son and daughter to attend a private school, according to an arrest affidavit.
