11th Detroit Public Schools principal cops a plea in kickback case

Following in the footsteps of 10 colleagues, an 11th Detroit principal has cut a deal with the federal government in a kickback case involving a vendor who scammed $2.7 million from DPS with the help of a dozen principals and an assistant superintendent.

So far, 10 of those principals, the assistant superintendent and vendor have pleaded guilty.

The latest to join that group is Willye Pearsall, a former principal at Thurgood Marshall Elementary School, who has a plea hearing scheduled for June 15.
