The head of Chicago’s public schools said he was angered after watching FOX Chicago’s report Thursday night on unused school supplies being tossed in the trash.
CPS Superintendent Jean Claude Brizard spoke on FOX Chicago Sunday, and promised some changes in how school supplies are handled.
We found thousands of dollars worth of unopened school supplies and books in a dumpster behind the Northwest Middle School in Chicago’s Belmont-Cragin neighborhood.
The materials had been tossed by the school's principal, who said she needed to clean out their inventory.
That new directive about returning unused school supplies went out to principals in an e-mail Friday, and a formal letter will be sent next week.
