  •  Here's a quote from the 4th link in the diary (13+ / 0-)
    Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel (left) and CPS "Director of Faith Based Initiatives" (at $82,000 per year) Reynaldo Kyles. At the August 25, 2011, breakfast for Chicago preachers at Sox Park, Emanuel and Kyles urged the preachers to make the subject of the "Longer School Day" part of their Sunday sermons and to sign the preacher petition on behalf of the longer school day. On September 8, 2011, Rahm Emanuel told the Chicago City Council that the signatures on the petition were proof that Chicago's citizens wanted the longer school day, while outside bus loads of rented protesters were carrying signs saying "90 more minutes and two more weeks."

    This in and of itself is despicable - utilizing "faith-based-initiatives" to privatize education.

    There's none so blind that will not see.
