The Dallas Morning News reports today that the Dallas school district had, until last summer, a practice of giving foreign teachers with visas fake Social Security numbers to quickly get them on the payroll. Some of the phony numbers were used to conduct background checks of new hires who had been brought in to teach bilingual courses, the article says.
