Daley gives up on his own school reform, backs vouchers
So much for Chicago school reform, Arne Duncan's "Chicago miracle," Renaissance 2010 & fixing broken schools. Mayor Daley has given up on his own reform. He's flipped and now supports vouchers, giving away badly needed public school dollars to send more students to Catholic & private schools. This, even after major studies on the nation's oldest voucher program in Milwaukee show zero net gains for students.
