    I’m shocked — shocked! — to find that some school districts in Oregon are gaming the hybrid system for financial gain:

    Oregon education officials are cracking down on the public money that school districts receive to pay for home-schooled students who attend “alternative” programs.

    The stepped-up oversight comes after authorities with the state Department of Education found “questionable legality, and in some cases, outright illegality” among existing programs, said Gene Evans, a spokesman for the agency.

    Problems were centered around districts asking to be reimbursed for students who were not formally enrolled in the school district, or living within district boundaries, Evans said, and oversight of such programs from the state had been admittedly spotty.
