In a tense emergency meeting at Whitney Young yesterday, CPS CEO Ron Huberman identified the names of 20 "clouted" students who had been accepted at the school on the basis of access and power rather than through normal channels.
"Through no fault of their own, and in many cases without their knowledge, these young people were admitted to this school through unacceptable methods," said Huberman. The meeting was called to address persistent discord among students and parents debating which students were qualified to attend the school, one of Chicago's most popular public high schools. No word yet if Huberman plans to "out" students at other popular schools.
