Fraud in Education: Beyond the Wrong Answer Nov 23, 2016
by Tonya Mead
There is BIG money in education. Taxpayers and venture capitalist invest $605.7 billion annually. 100,000 schools and 7,200 colleges vie for this pot of gold for educating 75.2 million students and employing 4.6 million teachers and faculty. As in other industries, healthcare, insurance, and finance; fraud follows the money flow. According to the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners; the education sector is in the Top 5 industries for reported fraud with the fastest fraud growth rate. Added to this is the increased risk for cyber crime. In 2015, more than 1.3 million identities were exposed in this sector alone. This book explores the conditions making schools and universities prime targets for insider and outsider fraud, cyber and white collar crime and provides recommendations for prevention.
In seven short years (2024), experts predict that the average Black household wealth will decline by 30%. This is after the 50% drop in wealth from 2006 to 2011. The public educational system and politicians have failed us. We must act now before it is too late. If we are not careful, economists warn that Blacks will not hold any assets by 2053. This book is packed with 300 pages of faith-based strategies for Blacks to expand their financial horizons and to break the psychological chains that bind them to poverty, oppression and racism. The author calls upon readers to collectively awaken from our slumbers and rise on our wings before it is too late.
