Urban Education Program Being Closed

A friend sent in this email from a CPS principal about the imminent closure of a teacher prep program on the North Side -- anyone know anything about it?

"The Urban Education Program (UEP) of the Associated Colleges of the Midwest (ACM) http://www.acm.edu/
... It prepares
high-quality teachers to serve in Chicago's poor schools.  The
closure of the UEP is mired in controversy and mystery.  The Director,
Demetria Iezetto, and the co-director, Vicki Trinder, are baffled by
the vague reasons.  Finances are tight, but that doesn't seem to be the
real reason.  It's unclear to them what the real reason is.  From
both a personal and professional perspective, I think this is an
important story for the public to know about (and possibly sway the ACM
at the 11th hour)."
