  • I seem to recall CPS had a medical officer who was an MD up to about 1979. The whole department was closed following a budget crisis that year as I recall. One of the reasons it was closed was all that the office did was process various forms.

    We can be sure this MD will be making over $150,000 a year. I thought CPS was in its worst budget crisis ever?

  • Cut teachers and hire more administrators. If we have a deficit where is the money for this? No money for classroom teachers but more administrators is ok. Strange how daley overtly shows his corruption with impunity now. There is a good article on how daley diverts city money for private projects in the reader this week.

    The same is and has been going on in CPS:fake deficits and reallocation of resources away from students and into downtown patronage jobs.

  • I would love to see Ben Joravsky and Mick Dumke let loose on CPS corruption and mismanagement. There's George Schmidt. There's Rod Estvan. Add these two guys and we'd start getting some decent coverage of CPS.

  • Ron ran 911. Ron ran CTA. Ron is running CPS INTO the burial ground! He does not know what he is doing and proves it EACH day! (Still hiring key no-nothing people. Lying about the budget.) Now kids cannot even get to school without being killed. And Daley is not mayor enough (nor does he care with the loss of his beloved Olympics) to let this non-performer go. Stop mourning the olympics mayor and get your act together. you wanted the schools and you got them--all the power, all the $ and now all the death. And the guy you selected is screwing it up with his daily choices. Fine if you do not want to run again, but YOU MUST correct this mistake now. You know mayor, this is your grandchildrens' future too or will they run away from chicago as fast as they can? Your legacy mayor? Stop making it up in your head and get to it now. This is it!
