Got a school problem? Call the Problem Solver!
I don’t know why it cracks me up that this family contacted the Tribune’s Problem Solver because a magnet school wouldn’t let both their twins in. (One got in via the lottery, the other didnt.) The Problem Solver handles things like ComEd sending you a bill for $20K or a repair place refusing to give your car back.
So I find it funny that these people thought the Problem Solver could call CPS and make things happen. I also admire their moxie for doing it. Hey, why not?
They do point out an absurdity in the current system — Magnet schools will allow siblings into the school (only younger, I assume) but this does NOT include a twin! CPS “defends” itself by saying that they’re still figuring things out so they just put a 1 year policy in place. But still, if class sizes are really going to rise, wouldn’t it make sense to let twins in first and THEN add other kids? Wouldn’t it?!?!
