A gift to Mike Koldyke and AUSL
Mayor Richard Daley and other officials on Wednesday toured Eric Solorio Academy High School, and Daley reminded everyone who picked up the more than $100 million price tag.
DALEY: Remember, this is all city money. Not state or federal government. This is taxpayers in the city of Chicago. They're paying for modern schools across Chicago.
It might be taxpayer money, but the school will be managed by a private company. Schools chief Ron Huberman says the Academy of Urban School Leadership, or AUSL, will run the school and act as a sort of teaching laboratory.
The three-story school includes five computer labs and a six-lane pool. (City Room)
