Resident finds school records in Chicago alley

May 31, 2009 (CHICAGO) The resident who found the records in a trash bin Saturday says they included health records, parents' information, pictures and even Social Security numbers.

"I don't have any children in CPS, but if I did I would really hope that the school would take better care of their records, especially confidential information like this," said Art Kuesel, who found the records.

Chicago Public Schools says it is conducting an internal investigation, along with Chicago police, to determine how the sensitive records ended up in the trash.
