Students Want Input on Security Issues

With a spate of recent school shootings spurring CPS chief Arne Duncan to institute “audits” of school security, students are pressing for their concerns to be heard.

Chicago Youth United members met with Duncan last September to raise security issues. They asked that security guards be at least 21 years old and meet other standards, and that they be required to undergo sensitivity training designed with youth input.

A CPS staffer later told CYU that the hiring standards would be forwarded to principals as a recommendation; current training materials which were promised to CYU members were never delivered, organizers said. (See Newtips Aug. 15, 2002)
