Yesterday Chicago Tonight ran this interview with Chicago schools CEO Huberman from October, where he explains his goofy $30-million violence prevention scheme. Predicting kids most likely to be shot. Give them part-time jobs. Huh?
It's the end of the year now and still no real violence prevention programs. Parents are irate. Storming the school board meetings. They want safe neighborhood schools--not Renaissance 2010 school closings, more elite selective-enrollment military schools or privately-managed charters for a few kids.
