Nationwide mismanagement of Job Corps calls for action!

Past OIG Audit of Fort Simcoe Job Corps Center reveals unreliable program information

-“We concluded that Job Corps could not rely on financial or program information reported by the Fort Simcoe Job Corps Center (FSJCC).”

Has anything changed since 1998?

From OIG’s audit of Fort Simcoe Job Corps center.  Read about it here:

It should be clear to our regular readers that nothing has changed about the Job Corps’ maneuvering its statistics over the years. OIG’s investigations and negative audits have caused a high level of sophistication in today’s Job Corps Centers manipulating the press with its every positive achievement.  When Job Corps students re-paint a State Police barracks or pour concrete for a sidewalk in front of a small town library, there is much fanfare and celebration and, a press release is sent to newspapers touting the event.  Good deeds are strategically planned so as to get as much newspaper coverage as possible. Other staff and myself were “assigned the task” of ensuring that a positive newspaper article about Shriver Job Corps was published every three months.  These assignments were not voluntary, we had to do them by a certain date. Job Corps has so far, created an artificial image for itself that is no different than a *Potemkin Village or an Emperor without clothing.

*Potemkin Village,  a pretentiously showy or imposing façade intended to mask or divert attention from an embarrassing or shabby fact or condition.
