Hundreds of Computers Stolen From DC Public Schools Over Three Years
At least 300 computers or tablets have been stolen from D.C. Public Schools in the past three years, far more than in larger, neighboring districts, according to an investigation by the News4 I-Team.
The thefts include computers reported stolen during school hours, nights and weekends. They listed in a set of D.C. records obtained by the I-Team under the Freedom of Information Act.
Computer thefts in DC schools are three times more frequent than in the larger, neighboring Fairfax County Public School District. They are 20 times more frequent than in the Frederick County (Md.) Public School District, which has a similar number of enrolled students.
