Apr 4, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Chicago Tribune

Mayor Rahm Emanuel backed his public schools chief Thursday amid charges that the plan to close 54 schools is racist, and leveled criticism at the Chicago Teachers Union for what he said was its inability to articulate an alternative to continuing with a failed status quo.

Emanuel's own background makes him particularly well-suited for number crunching and working for the benefit of ALL.

If the numbers say that two schools can be combined, then that's the way it's going to be.

Rather than bleeting out 'racism', these people should look at the facts and statistics and identify whether there are any non-black schools that match the criteria for closure, that are not being closed.

They should spew FACTS about which non-black schools would benefit from consolidation.

(and if there are none to be found, they should all go home)
