The St. Joseph School District, the 16th-largest school district in Missouri, has been plagued by a stipend scandal. Ballotpedia first exposed the depth of corruption over a year ago, and provided thorough coverage as the story unraveled.

Watch the video below for an in-depth run-down on the St. Joseph School District scandal.

Brittany Clingen reports on the scandal in the St. Joseph School District.

John Tedesco

Hi DJS0406, thanks for your recent edits on John Tedesco's profile page. Unfortunately, I had to revert the edits because they appear to have been copied directly from Wikipedia. If you personally added the contents of the articles to both Wikipedia and Ballotpedia then that content can stay. If that is the case, please just post your Wikipedia username so that I can verify the contributions.

You can read more about this here.

Material you recently added to Ballotpedia has some of the characteristics of material that was copied-and-pasted from Wikipedia. These characteristics include:
  • A number of red links to articles that do not exist on Ballotpedia, but do exist on Wikipedia.
  • Categories that do not exist on Ballotpedia, but do exist on Wikipedia.
  • A reference/footnote citation style that is frequently used on Wikipedia.

If you did copy-and-paste text from Wikipedia, you may have done so because you believe that text from Wikipedia is in the public domain and can be used anywhere else with no conditions. That is not the case.

If the text in question covers a topic that is relevant to Ballotpedia, we recommend that you re-write the text to put it into your own words, as well as removing inappropriate red links and categories that don't exist on Ballotpedia.

Copyright infractions place Ballotpedia at legal risk, as well as violating the rights of others, and we take this very seriously. Users who continue to add such material, or who do not rectify the problem when it is brought to their attention, are likely to be blocked from editing.
