Meeks `admonishes' Daley on schools Tribune

of criticism for Mayor Richard Daley's handling of the Chicago Public

Hundreds march through downtown streets for education Defender
Chicago Public Schools spokesman
Peter Cunningham told the Defender Friday that while Meeks raised some
good points, it is not true that all North Side schools are better than
those on the South and West sides of the city.

Meeks to hit street for funding to get `quality teachers' Tribune

State
Sen. James Meeks, who threatened to run for governor until incumbent
Rod Blagojevich agreed to seek increased school funding, is turning his

better teachers.

Anyone see any Sun Times coverage of this?

devious and damaging.
