CHICAGO — Some very angry parents will meet with Chicago Public Schools officials this morning.

They wanted to get their kids into the city’s most prestigious schools; but because of a computer glitch, their applications got tossed out.

CPS changed its application process to require a family to designate which school they wanted their children to attend.

When some parents didn’t select a school, their applications were rejected as incomplete.

    If you don’t select a school, your application IS incomplete. What is so hard to understand? It’s not a computer glitch. It’s a human mistake. Deal with it.

    Really? The cause of complaint should be listed as “stupidity.” It’s not the fault of the CPS that these parents can’t complete a form.
