Here's something you don't see very often: Former Clemente LSC head Jose Rodriguez has been fired by the board of ASPIRA charter schools, reports the Sun Times (ASPIRA charter school CEO fired). The school network's scores have been disappointing, and its teachers went through a unionization drive. Three of its campuses joined the extended day incentive program this year. Anyone know more about Rodriguez and/or what's really going on at Aspira, let us know.
UPDATE 11am: Here are a couple of unconfirmed videos about what's been going on at Aspira, thanks to Seth Lavin (sign up is here) Video 1, Video 2. Check the notes for some explanation. Anyone from Apsira on here? I'd love some eyewitness commentary.
