MCPS spends $2.5 million a year on lawyers

Montgomery County Public Schools spent $2.3 million on lawyers in fiscal year 2003, and is likely to have spent another $2.5 million on attorney in this current 2006 fiscal year, the Almanac reports. MCPS spends twice as much on lawyers as neighboring Fairfax County, Virginia, which is as affluent as Montgomery and has a larger school system.
