Projects Panic

The Trib's article about fury over the Ogden School's move to the deepest, darkest, gentrifying West Loop is about is infuriating as you can expect, especially since temporary move is for, among other things, an underground parking renovation. Anyway, what Athenae said:

"I want to take you by the ear and drag you down 20 miles south to see schools with holes in the ceilings and chains on the doors with kids just as nice as yours, just as deserving as yours, just as blameless as yours trying to learn with parkas on because the boilers don't work."

Maybe they could do school in shifts somewhere.
