|Patti Vasquez and Pete Lee on WGN last night|
I felt at times that I should be interviewing Patti who describes herself on Twitter as, Special Needs Mom. Also known as Latina Supermom, about the trials and tribulations of a parent with an autistic child in public school.
She definitely got it when I commented on the Board's new budget which robs programs for kids with disabilities and throws more money at privately-run charter schools. I also got to talk about the problems with mayoral control of the schools and the need for an elected school board.
I found common ground with Patti and Pete who carried the ball in response to a couple of callers who blamed lazy, greedy teachers for bringing down the school system. You know -- those teachers who make tons of money for only working 8 months out of the year. The shows co-hosts would have none of it.
Thanks again, Patti and Pete.
