In a Tribune interview, Monday (do they still cover Chicago news?) RE lays out his plan for Chicago school reform. It's a pretty simple plan--let the Billionaire Boys Club pay for it and run it. Maybe we can bring in some of that Face Book money. How about it, Zuckerberg?
"We've raised a ton of money for the Olympics," Emanuel said. "Let's raise a ton of money for school reform right here on our own Chicago version of Race to the Top. Let's not wait for the feds."
Wait! Isn't Rahm currently "the feds"? Didn't the "feds" just recently reject Chicago's (and the state's) bid for RTTT funding? Is that what he means when he makes Olympics comparison? Why are Chicago schools still waiting for adequate funding?
I think I'll vote for the candidate (if there is one) who wants to keep the public in public education.
