Families lie to get kids into selective enrollment schools

Too many families are lying to get their kids into Chicago’s selective high schools. That was one of the main findings of yesterday’s CPS inspector general report. It comes out each year at this time, detailing the misdeeds of students, teachers, administrators and faculty in the district. This year, Inspector General Nicholas Schuler has proposed some tough changes to crack down on this problem. WBEZ’s Monica Eng covered this story--but as a CPS mom--she also knows all too well the situation that fostered it. She’s here to talk about both. We also want to hear from you. What do you think about the high stress selective enrollment process? How did you or will you navigate it? (Flickr/Erin Nekervis)
