Juan Rangel is a poverty pimp! No one can deny that! Juan hires even hires non-degreed folks , meaning they don't even have an associate degree, and place in front of a classroom. Juan Rangel's UNO schools are "sweat shops" by providing low wage inexperienced folks to run a classroom. That is what Juan Rangel has in store for Chicago. That is Rahm's vision was well. Chicago needs to look beyond the new buildings bought with their tax money robbed from the neighborhood schools. UNO is HDO refried! Orale!
Rahm is stacking the deck on the Board of Education and by hiring the incompetent CEO. Rahm is about only one thing, privatizing the public schools. The Mayor gets his low wage new teachers (while farming out the veterans) and the parasites of the business community will fight for charter school concessions. In the meantime, Rahm still lies about the success of charters with his bad math. He still lies even when he is called on it. The children of Chicago are getting the short end of the stick. Remember, it is the CEO of CPS that makes educational policy and wastes big money supporting their errors. This money could be spent in the classroom and building real teacher leadership in each school. Too many morons hired at the top on Clark Street! Truth!
Maybe Rangel will give back some of the $120,000,000 dollars he got from the state democratic cronies back to where it is needed. Rangel needs to be investigated. UNO is the new HDO.
Daley does not care for the children in neighborhood schools. He could care less. Daley should give the money back to the neighborhood schools. They need the money! The alderman don't care as well. They don't mind watching Daley's policy to keep the poorest neighborhoods last on the list of services ongoing. Why do the children have to pay for the sins of Daley and his cronies. Why do people who have no knowledge on running a school district have a say over policy when the teachers are not asked to give feedback in a meaningful way.
We need a forensic audit. As tax payers, we deserve to see where ALL the money is going. Huberman prides himself as a data wrangler, so whipping out the financial books should be no problem. The quote in the article "But that information was pre-layoff. So it had to be re-created" is very troubling. You don't "recreate" data. The data is chronological. Again, for folks who pride themselves as being efficient and on point with "data", their operation looks quite the contrary. The easiest act of transparency that Huberman can do for us all is open the books to s forensic audit. Mr. Huberman, quit stalling and open the books. Have some integrity!
To the racist commentator... you can't stop the 'browning' of America. Anyone who has studied sociology, knew this back in the 70's. We need to provide all children a quality public school education, so they can have jobs and pay taxes to provide us with some social security in our old age. We can not afford to NOT to teach all the children. It would be short sighted of us.
The Patronage Management Group that Huberman has brought in are as ignorant of running a school district as he is. They all got a raise in that department. Why? Demand a Forensic Audit of the Book$!!!
Monique Bond, her highness, the queen of disinformation!
