What corruption is the Special Investigator keeping from us, and why?

Check out Elizabeth Green’s analysis at GothamSchools about all the substantiated reports from the Office of Special Investigator, confirming hundreds of cases of corruption and/or malfeasance by Department of Education staff or employees over the last few years, that have been kept from the public with only Joel Klein having been allowed to see them.

How many other cases are there like the Chris Cerf report, being withheld from our view?

Only 6-10% of these reports have been released to the public. Which begs the question, why are these reports being suppressed, and why don't us taxpayers have the right to know what he has found out?
