‘They Failed My Son,’ Chicago Public Schools to Pay $4 Million in Special Ed. Teen’s Drowning at School Pool
Someone was at the bottom of the pool at Kennedy High School, not moving. At least three students told that to the Chicago Public Schools lifeguard on duty.
But the lifeguard ignored them, according to records obtained by the Chicago Sun-Times and the Better Government Association that CPS officials released but then went to court in a failed effort to keep them secret.
