School Board President Michael Scott received a hero's send-off
Sunday in a public memorial service where he was recalled as a man both
forceful and indefatigable, and charming and conciliatory -- whatever
it took to make peace and get things done. The most poignant moment
happened when Scott's children addressed the crowd. They were met with
a standing ovation.

  • from CBS: "Chicago Public Schools CEO Ron Huberman say Scott was a privileged man who made it his business to fight for the underprivileged, as he did recently while supporting the most severely disabled students in the Chicago Public Schools. Huberman said he did that because Scott was concerned that the severely disabled students were part of a group that no one else would champion."

    I did not know that. Which population of "the most severely disabled students in the Chicago Public Schools" is being referred to here? Traumatic Brain Injured? Behavioral Disordered? I'd really like to know this. Does anyone know to which group of disabled students Ron Huberman is referring?

  • RIP Michael--it will always be believed that this mess at Fenger just put you over the edge. Shame on Don Frymd and his "turnaround strategy!" Is your big ego Don worth all this?

  • Ron's speech for RIP Michael was difficult to follow-confusing. he looked like a dear in the headlights-it just seemed wrong--no heart, no sensitivity, not even a personal touch--he spoke each word like he was reading each word for the first time. CEO of CPS? just plain sad.

    Ron always looks like a dear in the headlights. I have seen him live and he looks sad. Actually, he looks like a little kid who has not clue... Then again, it is true Huberman has no clue. That is not stopping the CAO's goose stepping to his orders. More BS and top down crap!

    I should be said that education was not improved during Scott's watch. Sorry, but the sham called Ren 2010 was in full effect. As we dig deeper into Red 2010, we see the lack of transparency which I believe begs for various investigations. This is tax payer money. The children deserve a quality education and the citizens don't need to be fooled again!
