Chicago Public Schools' Paddling Probe Widens

And now Harlan finds itself in the news on similar allegations that were made public from Simeon  from WBBM-TV:
The Chicago Public Schools' ongoing investigation into alleged paddling of student athletes by high school coaches has widened to include a fifth school, while several coaches have been suspended or had their jobs placed in limbo.

The most recent allegations involve paddling of football team members by a football coach at Harlan High, 9652 S. Michigan.

"Football season is over, so he is not currently coaching," CPS spokesman Mike Vaughn said this week.

High schools previously under investigation included Morgan Park, Marshall, Phillips and Simeon.
