"In theory, there's no difference between theory and practice, but in
practice, there is. " -Anonymous
NEW CHARTER STUDY
 “The results showed that they were virtually identical,” Mazany said of the 2010 study. “I found that surprising because charters are based on a model that they have greater freedom, opportunity to be innovative and be more flexible. So I would have intuitively expected they would have been performing much better than the neighborhood schools they were pitted against.” -- Terry Mazany, president and CEO of the Chicago Community Trust
"Stark raving Rahm"
PROGRESSIVE MAG INTERVIEWS RAHM
IC: What do you think when you hear the word “gentrification”? 
REI know there are a lot of bad connotations. High rents and people being forced out who have been there for years. And there is a reason it has that connotation. But if we are smarter about it, we can do things that allow improvements. -- Stark Raving Rahm
LSC ELECTIONS
 “If these people in the charter school movement see the importance of that local empowerment of the community and the parents and the teachers, why don’t they duplicate it within their own schools?” -- CTU's Michael Brunson  
TORTURE
“If he [Dick Cheney] doesn’t think that was torture, I would invite him anywhere in the United States to sit in a waterboard and go through what those people went through, one of them 100-plus-odd times." -- Sen. Angus King (I-Maine)
SCHOOL FUNDING
“Illinois will never succeed by starving its schools.” -- Gov. Quinn spokeswoman Brooke Anderson.
