'Turning around' in Chicago

A skilled veteran Chicago teacher, Ladwanna Harrison, makes some great points about AUSL's "turn-around" takeover of several CPS schools. You can listen to the whole interview on City room at WBEZ:
We can start over. I can go to a new school and I can get a new classroom and a new group of kids and I’ll be fine and I can start over. But these 25 kids are going to have to see someone completely different. They’re going to walk into a school where they know no adults. No adults.
