(NYC NEEDS THIS MAN!)
Arne Duncan, the Chief Executive Officer of Chicago Public Schools
JUST TESTIFIED that we need to move away from a culture that SHUTS OUT
parents and the community!(Bloomberg said parents shouldn't "run" the
school - I'll go back to that later!)

In Chicago he has Community School/Centers that have school-based
health centers, 12 hour days for families, afterschool classes where
siblings can join each other and GED, Computer and Literacy classes
for the adults in the family.

LET'S GET TO TALK TOT HIS GUY! I'M ON IT!

All they are talking about is teachers, teachers pay, teachers incentives, and federal funding going to the mayors and giving the mayors control over education!
