Hundreds in school system had sex with students in Chicago

Sex 'n' drugs 'n' rock 'n' roll have replaced readin', writin' and 'rithmetic in Chicago schools.

Dylan Sharkey reported, "Chicago Board of Education Inspector General Will Fletcher reported 470 sexual complaints against Chicago Public School employees from students in 2022.

"The report details students being abused, groped, groomed, assaulted and threatened by school officials.

"One investigation found a former Junior ROTC staff member had sex with a 16-year-old high school student for a year. When he learned there was an investigation, the staff member threatened to kill the girl and her family if she cooperated with investigators."

The teacher gave the girl alcohol and marijuana.

Fox reported, "An OIG investigation concluded one teacher groomed and sexually assaulted a 17-year-old student three times. That teacher was charged with multiple counts of sexual assault. After a November 2022 trial, the teacher was acquitted on all counts, the report said, despite evidence provided by the student and social media records.

"The pair also exchanged hundreds of text messages and calls."

The teacher texted, "I’m ready to f--- right now … I’m not gonna be gentle either."

How romantic.

WFIN reported, "One charter school administrator took a high school junior to a Broadway play in downtown Chicago when he touched her leg during the performance, the report said. After the show, while driving the student home, he “slid his hand down inside of the front of the student’s pants and touched his genitals.”

"The administrator also took the student on trips to Las Vegas, Los Angeles, London, Ibiza and the Bahamas, the OIG said. The administrator resigned after the OIG recommended he be terminated."

If not terminated, at least the school system should eliminate his travel budget.

Highlights from the Chicago City Wire story included:

  • A CPS high school gym teacher who repeatedly exposed himself to one sophomore girl and connected with another 15 year old student on social media and "sent her photos and videos of himself masturbating and engaged in other sexual acts."
  • A CPS substitute teacher who "asked a student to recruit another student for a 'threesome," told another student he loved her, repeatedly attempted to kiss a student and asked her "to make out with him," commented on a student’s “hickey" and described himself to students as "well hung."
  • A CPS elementary teacher who "sexually touched" a CPS student repeatedly over several years, when he was 11 to 14 years old. He also "purchased food and gifts for the student and members of his family," and "spent the night in the student’s bedroom, having sex with the student."

This should be a Drudge Report flashing alarm story because this scandal goes well beyond sex. The sex stories were just part of a 120-page OIG report.

Chicago Chalkbeat reported, "Chicago Public Schools’ watchdog is raising red flags about sharply increasing extra pay for school staff in recent years, rising sexual misconduct complaints, and a troubling practice of schools mislabeling students as transfers when they’re missing school. 

"The district’s Office of Inspector General detailed these and dozens of other instances of fraud, misconduct, and wrongdoing in a sweeping 120-page annual report released Thursday. 

"Inspector General Will Fletcher said his office received 1,825 complaints and opened investigations into 725 — or about 40% — of them. Hundreds were allegations of sexual misconduct taken up by a special unit of investigators created in 2018, which also is investigating complaints received in previous years."

The school system, which is partly funded on enrollment, continues to fudge numbers on truancy despite five OIG reports in the last 8 years.

Chicago Public Schools spokeswoman Mary Fergus wrote in response to the scandal, "As a District, we take seriously our responsibility to serve our families with integrity and to address individuals who breach CPS policies and the public’s trust — and hold them accountable. CPS will continue to ensure our District policies and procedures support the highest ethical standards to ensure our valued team members act in the best interest of our students."

Will continue means do nothing.

  1. It's a safe assumption that the Chicago teachers' union has all the Democratic office holders in their pocket.

    1. "Join the Chicago teacher's union! 99000$ a month. No limitations! All depends on how much you want each day."

      I see the similarities in the advertising!

    1. I can answer that, my sister in law recently moved from Napierville IL to get away.....mostly DEMOCRATS thats who! Apparently they don't care enough to attend school board meetings and raise hell like other red state parents do, nor demand some accountability from the superintendent of schools. Who continues to be re elected statewide, yr after yr? It ain;t conservatives!!

  4. Do their parents even care? One of the positives from the COVID era is understanding and seeing what is going on in public schools.

    1. Many of these inner city kids come from single parent families. Usually the mother, who might be overwhelmed or tuned out and not aware if the situation. You know the school system and the media will do it's best to downplay and bury this information.

      Heck, did anyone here learn about this other that here on Don's Blog page?

    2. I totally believe that many of these inner city kids also have an overwhelmed and disadvantaged parent. It's already a big strike against them. I wish school would help lift them up and not keep them down, intended or not.

    3. Even around here, which is some inner city kids but even in the surrounding subrubon counties. Kids get passed up to the next grade not being able to read, not being able to do math or even simple currency to make change. The teachers are graded on passing kids, not making sure the kids are educated. The 'leave no child behind' program, I think had unintended consequences. The teachers now teach to the test, not for kids to learn.

      I had friends who held back their son a grade when he couldnt read. They had to fight the school to hold him back. It did no good so they let him pass the following year and taught him a lot at home, though didnt home school. However, the teachers still get arrested / and prison for sex crimes though.

      Chicago has a whole 'nother level of corruption going. I am so glad I have no kids in school right now.

  5. More evidence that the teacher's union is seriously responsible for the undermining of education for their students and impacting their success in life. Some seem just to be a launching pad for career life of crime and incarceration. Soros and his handpicked DA's may not like incarceration but they do nothing to help K-12 education.

  6. Caring, responsible parents should not allow their children attend public school.

    1. I now consider it child abuse. Don't give me any excuses. Your priorities are what you make them. If your child is not a number 3 priority (After God, and your spouse), then you are doing something wrong. If your child is still in public school, fix your priorities and do what is necessary to get them out of there. Home schooling is amazingly easy. There is so much information available at little to no cost, you can do it for about the same cost as you spend daily on your child's lunch money.

  8. Yes, money is based on enrollment, so attendance fraud is rampant. I noticed schools have no pics of students on their website bc there aren't many students. https://wirepoints.org/new-cps-data-mayor-lightfoot-chicago-teachers-union-continue-to-keep-dozens-of-empty-failing-schools-open-wirepoints/?utm_source=Wirepoints+Newsletter&utm_campaign=0525440edd-RSS_EMAIL_CAMPAIGN&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_895ee9abf9-0525440edd-201416892

    1. And school ranking is based on graduation rates. Holding kids back may be in the kids best interest, but not in the administration’s.

    2. Nope and they dont report truancy because attendance fraud.

  9. The demographics of Chicago schools has a lot to do with what is "acceptable", no doubt.

  10. As a resident of IL, I can assure you that the CPS could absorb 100% of all earned income in the State (income, not taxes) and still fail while whining for more money.
