The Pennsylvania Auditor General is reprimanding two school districts in Lackawanna County for mismanaging nearly $7.5 million in taxpayer dollars. Both Scranton and Carbondale Area school districts are being blamed for wasting taxpayer money on risky investments, poor decisions, and ineffective management. The auditor general’s report released what he is calling “staggering” numbers. According to the report, the Scranton School District and the Carbondale Area School District mismanaged a combined total of nearly $7.5 million that the auditor general says could have been put towards teacher salaries and school programs.
