'Poorly thought out reform, a travesty...'

Chicago high school teachers and former CTU prez Debbie Lynch, nails it in her letter in today's Sun-Times.
No one at Fenger this year has known their kids for more than three weeks. This is a tragedy for all the students, not to mention the effects of the staff elimination on the staff... Our schools don't have enough social workers or psychologists to provide critically needed support for these students. Research shows that high-poverty students respond best to low class sizes, but CPS would rather invest in high-priced fancy consulting firms

  1. Chicago 2016 group has millions of unspent $$$. It should go to the schools. Leaders are making $300K/year. For what? http://www.suntimes.com/sports/olympics/1806661,CST-NWS-oly05.article
