Response to proud2BlibKansan (Reply #5)

7. i was referring to a specific comment, reported by karen lewis,

with no context, that 20-something (sorry, don't recall the exact number cited.) % of the kids in the system were never going to improve.
she found it outrageous and has repeated it several times, including on the ed show. she and ed trounced rahm. i thought the lack of civility was a shame. it will cost chicago's teachers to have her as their face, imho.

and just fyi, i think that story is pretty overblown. it wasn't rahm. it was a pastor who wanted to give some of the homeless guys that are in his charge something to do. he wanted a reason to give them dinner money. i have seen it many times. it's not like someone paid hundreds of dollars for people in suits. i have no reason to believe that anyone had a nefarious purpose.
