Re: “Barack Obama College Prep serves (the whitest and wealthiest in) Chicago

The school is being built with TIF funds which if you understood anything about them means that they are additional property taxes paid OVER what the district requires, which then can be used for infrastructure improvements, which when it comes to high schools, we desperately need in the wealthier parts of town so people who actually pay taxes and contribute money to the city coffers don't high tail it to the suburbs as soon as their kids turn 13 or whatever. AND if you were intelligent enough to actually look at the demographics of places like Peyton you would see they are extremely racially diverse, AND this proposed high school will have 30% enrollment from geographically local students which is not the whitest and wealthiest either. Your article is garbage!
