Whitney Young principal to testify

A Chicago public school principal has been subpoenaed by a federal grand jury investigating admissions to Chicago's elite college prep high schools. The Sun-Times reports Whitney Young Magnet Principal Joyce Kenner has acknowledged she received the subpoena.

It has also been revealed that 9th Ward Alderman Anthony Beal disclosed his daughter was admitted to the school in 2004 after he called Kenner.

Twenty-second Ward Alderman Ricardo Munoz has also admitted to calling Principal Kenner. But both elected officials say they never pressured Kenner to accept their children as so-called "principal picks."

Principal Kenner says she has nothing to hide and has done nothing wrong.
