Who sez there's no money?

Dropping the Renaissance brand
Renaissance Schools Fund, which for the last six years has poured enough startup money into new charter schools to triple their number in the Chicago Public Schools system announces a new $60 million venture fund to add 50 more charter schools.  The fund will focus on replicating successful charters in Chicago and bringing in high-performing charter schools from out of state. Additionally, the group plans to drop Mayor Richard Daley's "Renaissance" moniker and take on a new name: New Schools for Chicago. (Tribune) -- Catalyst
