Clearly there's a huge problem with our public schools in Chicago. What's less obvious is what the problem is, and what to do about it. Julie Vassilatos, also known by her twitter handle @foolforcps, examines and questions the actions taken by CPS administration and the mayor as they seek to solve the problems they see.

Along the way we consider national issues such as charter schools, privatization, and the incessant standardized testing of our children. Unfortunately we in Chicago are not alone in our struggle against nonsense masquerading as "education reform."

It is up to the reader to determine who the fools are.
