Chicago public schools have some sexual assault issues

The CPS Inspector General released a report this month and it is . . . some reading.


Note: The pdf is to the IG report and is hosted on their official government website.

From page 43, this was awesome of them:

The student reported the incident to two other staff members within days of the
occurrence, but both of them failed to notify the school’s administration as they were
required to do as mandated reporters. Instead, the staff members made excuses for
the teacher. One of them said that the conduct was probably unintentional and that
he did not believe the teacher would sexually harass a student because he had a
daughter of his own. The other staff member blamed the student for wearing
provocative clothing, implying that she brought the problem on herself.

Read through and wonder why a major city school system reads like the Catholic Church.
