LSC revolt grows against Rahm's budget slashing

Bell's LSC meets in response to Rahm's budget slashing.  (Sun-Times)
Parents, teachers, and faculty of Audubon Elementary voted Wednesday to reject, for the second time, a sharply reduced budget. Even with an extra $100,000 dollars in hush money now being offered by CPS, the budget of the Roscoe Village school would have been about $300,000 less than last year’s budget, a reduction that leaves the art and music teaching positions, as well as several administrative jobs, in jeopardy.

The Sun-Times reports that six schools, all in well-to-do areas, so far have rejected their draft budgets — four outright: Blaine Elementary, Whitney Young Magnet High School, Edgebrook Elementary and Kellogg Elementary School. Two more, Audubon and Bell Elementary, rescinded previous approval votes.

  1. Thanks for keeping up posted Mike. Do you know if there is any official response from Mayor Rahm? Or do you know if there is any larger movement planned? I still feel like, even though this is critical for all our kids, the public and our officials have been pretty quiet. Where is the outrage?


Agree? Disagree? Let me hear from you.
