Internal audits at a third of Albuquerque, N.M., public schools have turned up numerous problems, including instances involving thousands of dollars in questionable expenditures and improperly recorded receipts. Fifty-eight schools were found wanting.

For example, at Albuquerque High School, an audit found that nearly $20,000, raised by the entire student body, was used to pay for seven students and four adults to attend President Barack Obama's second inauguration in Washington last year. The audit could not identify two of the adults who went on the trip.

Kathy Korte, the chairwoman of the school board's audit committee, said the district needs to re-examine certain policy areas and take a close look at procedures and forms.
