The Chicago Inspector General began an investigation into CPS after a Better Government Association investigative reporter dug into a favor.

David Kidwell from the BGA joined ABC 7 Chicago Saturday to talk about the Chicago Public Schools investigation.

BGA reporter Kiannah Sepeda-Miller co-reported with Chalkbeat on a $1.6 million favor Mayor Lori Lightfoot sealed for a campaign donor with the city school system. The IG also looked into former Chicago Public Schools CEO Barbara Byrd-Bennett.

Projects like this one help provide residents with the transparency and accountability needed to ensure CPS is doing right by school staff, students and families, Kidwell said.
