Is anyone buying the Civic Committee's bogus report?

The Sun-Times finally notices the Civic Committee's report that discredited the past ten years of Chicago school reform. Kudos to the editorial board for not falling for their BS.
Mostly, it's an overly simplistic analysis of test data, assembled largely
to bash traditional public schools and promote the business group's preferred
solution -- expanding the number of charter and other privately managed

They could have also mentioned that it was the Civic Committee's and Mayor Daley's own bogus Renaissance 2010 plan that led to the reform flop. Can you imagine a report on Chicago school reform that never mentions Ren10 nor the mayor?
