CPS CEO to review social worker's case

Chicago Public Schools CEO Ron Huberman says he will review the case of a social worker in danger of losing his job because he doesn't live in the city.

Dan Coyne's situation has drawn a lot of attention because he recently donated a kidney to a virtual stranger.

Coyne lives in Evanston. He says when he took the job with the Chicago Public Schools, the requirement that he live in city limits was waved.

Coyne was honored Thursday at a social worker luncheon. He said he was unaware that Huberman had ordered a freeze on any action regarding him.

"If he could intervene for me, could he intervene for the hundreds of others that don't have the voice that I have?" said Coyne.

Coyne said he believes at least 800 other employees received a similar letter from Chicago Public Schools saying they would lose their jobs.
