Meeks Proposes Eliminating Local School Councils
Firebrand James Meeks is proposing to eliminate LSCs, according to information being sent around by LSC advocates.
What's going on here? Not the first dramatic move from Meeks, but one of the most unusual.
Maybe he's trying put attention on City Hall, or Springfield. I will try and find out.
Subject: Fw: REV. JAMES T. MEEKS FILES BILL to ELIMINATE LOCAL SCHOOL
This effects every citizen in Chicago. Local School
Councils are the vehicle that allows every citizen in Chicago to be able to
effect change in our schools.
They can legally effect change with input from the community by
affecting curriculum, hiring and firing principals, how monies and resources
are allocated, purchasing of books and programs.
These are just a few ways that LSC's with input from their
communities can affect change in their school communities. (LSC's are
the communities legal monitorin entity).
