School of Hard Knocks

Suit: Boy falls, teacher says crawl back to Skokie school – Chicago Sun-Times.

Devonshire Elementary School provided survivalist training to a six  year old boy who slipped in the snow, hitting his head and breaking his leg.

The following account comes from the parents,  Pritam and Priya, Chandani, and the school officials are not talking.

The teacher apparently told the boy, Rahul Chandani, to walk back, to the building, but he had to crawl as a result of the fractured tibia.

The parents were not notified nor was medical attention was offered to the boy, who was seen crawling by his mother when she picked him up after school.  She took him to the hospital.

As the survivalist training was not an expected or contracted part of the  curriculum, the school is facing a lawsuit filed by the parents.   There is no information as to whether the teacher still has a job.

Could a  teachers’ union member in Illinois be fired for such an infraction?

Could Residency Requirement Interfere with Rahm Emanuel’s Appointment as Chicago Mayor?

Experts say Rahm Emanuel not a legal resident of city :: CHICAGO SUN-TIMES :: Election 2010.

Apparently the fact that Rahm Emmanuel has been in Washington DC, and that his renter won’t allow him to break lease, means there may be trouble with his appointment as Mayor of Chicago.

It is very likely that the Cook County Court will endorse Emmanuel as it is considered important that a prospective Democrat Mayoral  appointee “wants” to live in Chicago.
