Official Seeks Review of Oakland School with Panhandling Students

A member of the Oakland School Board is taking action, following a joint CBS 5 and California Watch investigation into a school that sends children out to panhandle.

Students from Saint Andrew Missionary Baptist Church Private School have been seen at BART stations, seeking donations.

Yet court documents reveal the school has inflated class size to collect tens of thousands in federal education dollars. For the past 12 years, the school has been reporting at least 195 students a year, when in reality fewer than 20 children attend.
