Education Wed Jan 28 2009

Teachers, Parents, Students Out in Force

After making Ron Huberman's first day on the job at CPS quite unpleasant (h/t to Progress Illinois), a large demonstration of hundreds -- inching into thousands -- of teachers, parents, and students will be demonstrating in front of the Chicago Public Schools building at 125 S. Clark Street, beginning at 3:30pm today. If you work downtown, you may want to head over there and check it out -- and send us pictures, while you're at it. We'll post 'em!

Mayor Daley's Board of Education is run by the business community and himself. It's enough already. How much longer are the people of Chicago just going to accept that "The Mayor gets his way?" Do you really think forever?

Parents and teachers should be upset, CPS only had 2 schools in the top 100 and are highest score was 65%, When I went to school 65% was a D-, yet we make are school super head of the entire nation of schools,. So it makes sence, are cta is in trouble, are trains are outdated and not working..so why not make that person head of our school program.. typical Daley
