CPS inspector general opens investigation of board member’s investments

After the Sun-Times reported this week that a Chicago Board of Education member’s companies have tripled their business with the city’s school system since her appointment last year, CPS’ new inspector general said Tuesday he’s opened an investigation. Nicholas J. Schuler confirmed that his office is investigating the Sun-Times’ findings that several companies in which Deborah Quazzo has invested have received more than $3.8 million of business with CPS, $2.9 million of that since Mayor Rahm Emanuel put her on the board in June 2013. He would not elaborate, citing the pending investigation.
