Mayor Rahm to Prosser High: Beat it! [View all]

by Ben Joravsky


You've sort of got to give Mayor Emanuel credit for constantly looking for new and exciting ways to gut public education in Chicago.

It may be his greatest legacy.

Let's see—he closed 50 schools. He's fired hundreds of staffers. And he's ordered round after round of budget cuts that have left schools so broke they can't afford toilet paper or librarians.

Now he's settling on a new strategy—charter schools!

Actually, the strategy of killing unionized public schools by diverting their students to nonunionized charters is not new—it's a national mania.
