This blog sets out to put into perspective the actions our Chicago and Illinois politicians take. I will explain basic facts about different laws passed (or proposed). I then take those facts and place them into a larger dialogue about social justice and priorities in the city, country, and world. My specialty is the politics of education.
I will post at least twice every week. In an ideal world, I'll be able to do it multiple times a day, but I'll work my way up.
I am open to suggestions for blog post topics. If there is a specific ordinance or law that a reader doesn't understand, just comment or tweet at me with your suggestion, and I'll do my best to write a post that holds the answers you were looking for. Let the blogging experiment begin!
