Re: “The election is over, and here’s what you can do about it [UPDATED]

What about organizations that help foster communications and discussions among people to help them explore their own racial biases? Feel like that is so important right now, no not only on our own individually, but coming together with really smart discussion leaders to work through that stuff.

Re: “How investment bankers told Rahm that class size matters

Obviously Hanushek hasn't been paying attention to his Northwestern U. colleague's recent review of the literature on class size. In other words, this professor combed the research on class size, ID'd the crappy studies and focused on the studies that are valid and reliable, and found that class size does influence academic achievement. http://nepc.colorado.edu/files/pb_-_class_…

Re: “Rahm decrees: No elected school board vote for you!

Don't borrow trouble, Eugene. Let's get the elected board in place first. Then we tackle the rest.

Re: “Happy Independence Day, Chicago—say no to the $55 million DePaul B-ball arena/hotel

Oh, man, original IAC and Jeff, -- you guys are splitting hairs. That's not even the crux of the matter. Anyone who's been paying attention knows that schools have been hit hard, and yes, even when it comes to supplies like toilet paper. Whether schools have actually held fundraisers to make up for any of the budget cuts is not the point; the point is that Chicago Public Schools students are getting the shaft.
