Inside Chicago's school "renaissance."

Amazing! They actually mention the words, Renaissance 2010. First time in months anyone will say the R word. Linda Lutton at WBEZ does her usual fine job of showing the contradictions in the Daley/Huberman approach to school reform. It's all about neglecting or closing neighborhood schools and privileging privately-run, for-profit charters, like Chicago International.
Many of the new Renaissance 2010 schools are funded based on how many students they enroll. Larry Hawkins is offering parents $50 gift cards for every additional student they refer to the school.
