Roger Ailes (NYT)
Fox News Chief Exec. Roger Ailes 
“I’m walking around, and I feel just all this anger. I can’t figure out where it’s coming from.” -- NYT Sunday Book Review 
Eric Holder 
“A routine school disciplinary infraction should land a student in the principal’s office, not in a police precinct.” -- New York Times
Mark Anderson 
 Remind me again: Isn't Pat Quinn supposed to be a man of the people who chose Vallas because he had a “servant’s heart”? -- Ward Room
Historian Eric Foner 
 I'm certainly against this testing mania that's going on now where you can judge whether someone really understands history by their performance on a multiple-choice test. -- The Atlantic
Wendy Katten, director of Raise Your Hand 
What Chicago parents are lacking is the choice to send their child to a well-resourced neighborhood school with funding to provide a well-rounded education that their child can walk to without worrying about traveling unsafe distances. That choice is slipping away as the district aggressively disinvests in neighborhood schools. -- Crain's Chicago Business
James Merriman, N.Y. Charter School chief 
Said that while some charters were “not getting the job done” for special education students, the district schools’ attrition numbers were also “no great shakes.” [80% of children with special needs left charter schools within 3 years-M.K.]  -- New York Times
