FOIA is a legal process CPS parents can use to enlighten themselves on what is going on at your school or within the CPS C-Suite. Well, until you can’t get the information, no matter the law.
As we all know, it’s the Wild West at CPS, there isn’t a process for much of anything. So, the CPS Legal Eagles are in charge of the CPS FOIA Department. The Legal Eagles keep a watchful eye over FOIA.
Well, until they don’t watch. That is what happened with the multiple Ogden/Michael Beyer/Kranz data breach. It was released because Joe Moriarty and his FOIA team weren’t paying attention and released the link that included student data.

Welcome to the conversation as we expand to more advocacy in Chicago Public Schools!
