See if you can follow along with Daley

Test will follow

Mayor Daley, who has become the national poster boy for mayoral control of the schools, defended clout admissions to Chicago's selective enrollment high schools this way:
“They can take a C student and that C student can all the way go to a B or an A student. If everybody’s an A student, then you’re not gonna improve learning at all in any education system. You have to have confidence in principals in giving opportunities to young people and young families.”

“You go to other cities. They have highways. They’re moving out as quickly as possible. And if they come into a city, the first thing they say is, ‘I can’t live in the city, my kids can’t go to school. I want to go someplace else.’”
