More than $4.7 million in federal stimulus aid so far has been funneled to schools in North Chicago, and state and federal officials say that money has saved the jobs of 473 teachers.
Problem is, the district employs only 290 teachers.
"That other number, I don't know where that came from," said Lauri Hakanen, superintendent of North Chicago Community Unit Schools District 187.
The Chicago Tribune has done some actual journalism here, as it looked into the number of jobs in Illinois that the Obama Administration claims have been "saved or created" by the Stimulus Bill. Here's just one disgusting example they looked into.
