Yesterday Ron Huberman et al rolled out the outline of the proposed new magnet / selective enrollment plan. But, as with the infamous violence prevention plan, there are no details being provided. No briefing memo. No backgrounder. Not the research that was conducted to come to the final recommendation to the Board.
Not even a PowerPoint presentation.*
It makes a lot of sense for them not to give anything out. Why give out specifics when you can get the reporters to cover your plan without them? Why get into details when they'll only lead to complicated questions from parents and the public and maybe even the Board? This is Huberman's SuperSecret Magnet Schools Plan. Shhhhh!
*Click below for the link to the PowerPoint a reader found on the WBEZ site. Not really that much detail there, but not nothing either.
