Duncan testifies, Deb Meier responds

"Small schools vs. privately-managed charters...DOE has hardly any educators on staff...Mayoral control...single focus on test scores corrupts the purpose of education..."


  1. Agree...this smacks one, once again, of Big Bill Thompson and his sham trial of Superintendent McAndrew, which Thompson 1927 platform promised to do. What do you know, I just submitted a proposal regarding this fiasco and compared it to what's happening today in Chicago.

  2. Interesting point, Susan. Those battles in the 20's, between "American Firster" Mayor Thompson and the efficiency/business-minded/top-down reformer McAndrew were in many ways a precursor to today's battles. And then,like now, Chicago was the epicenter.


Agree? Disagree? Let me hear from you.
