CPS cross-country runners (including Payton’s) won’t be allowed to compete in the IHSA Regional competitions tomorrow after a judge rejected a request for a temporary restraining order (TRO) allowing them to compete while the CTU strike continues. “I greatly respect Judge Reilly’s (and the IHSA’s) desire for caution in order to protect student safety,” Will Foster writes. “Nevertheless, I am at least a bit skeptical of the ruling for the reasons heretofore stated. In particular, some of the factual assumptions upon which the equitable balancing rests seem dubious.”
