Little Village Alderman, Rick Munoz
"If the Board of Education wants to continue on this track of privatizing our public schools, that's the wrong track," said Ald. Ricardo Munoz, 22nd, speaking during a teachers union news conference shortly before the CPS board meeting. He said his community had to stage a 19-day hunger strike to pressure the district to build a neighborhood school. --Tribune: "Charters bring drama to CPS board meeting"
