Re: “Rahm says the schools are out of money—but not for Lincoln Park

Ben Joravsky's reputation for excellent and progressive journalism takes a hit when he accepts without critical comment the racist solution of eliminating Lasalle Language Academy as a magnet school in order to address overcrowding at Lincoln elementary. Lasalle became a magnet school decades ago in response to our city's segregated public schools. Two-thirds of its 500 students are black, asian, latino, from all over Chicago, many bused.

Re: “Breaking News: Mayor Rahm returns to the Democratic Party!

Ben, love your stuff, but you must not have children in the public schools. My wife and I do, and like thousands of other Chicago parents, we are grateful for and applaud what the mayor is doing to improve the neighborhood schools and all the other public schools. For the first time in my life, a mayor is giving priority to the children, not to the union or the bureaucracy. Chuck Bernardini
