Who at CPS leaked the Benn Report and why?

Remember how Rahm's spin machine demanded that teachers hold off on their strike vote until after the release of the fact-finder's report? The implication being that CPS would abide by the report's recommendations for a teacher pay raise.

Now the question is, who from CPS leaked parts of the fact-finder's report to the Tribune days before it was supposed to be released, and why? Or let me put it another way. Why, with less than 4 weeks to go before teachers are forced to strike, does Rahm/Brizard seem hell-bent on sabotaging the contract negotiations?

This morning's Trib carries an ass-covering editorial -- on the one hand denouncing Edwin Benn's recommendations as "irrelevant" while on the other, claiming: "We haven't seen Benn's report yet."

Please join me this evening for an SOS Webinar, when I interview CTU Pres. Karen Lewis and KOCO community organizer Jitu Brown. You can register for the webinar here and join in at 8 P.M. (CDT). For those of you who don't know what a webinar is, think of it as an online, interactive radio show, where you can participate by asking my guests question or making comments as time allows. Otherwise just listen and take it all in. All you need is a computer with internet access and a working mic (if you want to speak).
