Barbara Campbell, former D.C. principal, sued for tuition fraud

A former D.C. school principal and her family are being sued by the city for allowing her great-grandson, who lived outside the District, to attend her school for free, a spokesperson for the Attorney General says.

The tuition fraud suit against Barbara Campbell, her daughter and granddaughter was filed Friday. The suit alleges Campbell and her family enrolled the child at Langdon Education Campus in Northwest Washington for more than two years and lied about where the child lived.{ }

At an administrative hearing, the family testified that the boy lived in D.C. with his mother when, in fact, he lived with Campbell in Maryland.

According to the Office of the Attorney General, the city is seeking more than $75,000 in unpaid tuition and civil penalties.
