Inspector General Fails CPS in Ethics

CPS Inspector General James Sullivan says previous calls for ethics reform have fallen on deaf ears



    Chicago Public Schools received a failing grade in ethics from its own inspector general.

    A new report, released Monday, detailed widespread cases of fraud involving principals enrolling their own children in the free lunch program that's reserved for low-income families.

    That's not all.

    Inspector General James Sullivan said school administrators are being wined and dined by vendors in return for thousands of dollars in CPS business.

    In another instance, a student found nude photos on a teacher's computer, the report states.

    The IG again recommended that CPS enhance its ethics office.
