Last week it was reported in Catalyst (here) that that Ron Huberman was going to do a "gut check" on the results of the revised magnet admissions plan to make sure that it wasn't going to resegregate schools that are among the only desegregated ones in the city and -- it seemed -- make sure that didn't happen.
UPDATE: An eagle-eyed reader points out that the Tribune's version (here) of the gut check quote is much more ambiguous:
"We will have the opportunity to do a gut check and determine if we have achieved socioeconomic and racial diversity."
Over the weekend, however, CPS's Monique Bond clarified that there would be no such process for the upcoming year. She wrote me:
"Huberman's "gutcheck" comment simply translates into his commitment to monitor and revisit the plan after one year."
So -- if I understand correctly -- no gut check. The revised plan passed by the Board (revised
) stands as it is. Black and brown kids -- you're on your own.
