What can be done if an ex-employer isn't holding up their end of a termination agreement?

Question Details: My wife resigned from a school system rather than facing termination hearings over made up claims. She was given a written agreement that said the school system would give her favorable/neutral references to future employers and take out anything in her file that was negative. It's been over 3 years but she still hasn't landed a new job with a school system. Her resume has been reviewed by administrators at a higher level and they all say it's very impressive. I believe the old administration may be slandering her name verbally so there is no paper trail. How can this be proven and what can be done about it?
