Chicagoist Makes Fun of Mayor's Five Year High School Deal (And Shady St. Xavier Pitch Letter)

"Apparently, Daley went on a tirade yesterday after someone pressed him about his decision to let St. Xavier University send out recruitment letters on official letterhead with his signature," says Chicagoist (Victory Laps For the Mayor).  "He says high school should be extended to five years to help defray college tuition costs, and then college curriculums could be reevaluated and perhaps shortened to three years, making them cheaper."

Um, good idea, Mr. Mayor.  It's sure to help with high school overcrowding, for example.

Daley proposes fifth year of high school
Mayor Daley suggested Thursday that high school be extended for a fifth
year to defray college education costs now squeezing working poor and
middle-class families.
