Re: “Mayor Rahm and his administration struggle to tell the truth

How about the many kids who did not go to the "receiving" school but instead ended up at the charter right down the street? They are still in CPS; they are not, strictly speaking, "lost." But, let's stop beating around the bush and call out the privateers who want to make a buck under the pretext of "educating poor kids," and let's call out Rahm and his henchmen for their real agenda: blatant union busting. BTW, anyone ever been in some of these charters? Some are very anti-Spanish language, anti- parent involvement, pro "American dream," pro military. You can't have a real democracy without a robust educational system that promotes critical thinking. And you can't have a fair election without election finance reform.
