    I mean, it's bad enough to have a corporate agenda of privatizing schools and trashing the futures of kids whose parents don't have the means and connections to send them to U of C Lab School.

    It's another to be aware that your action is not only going to destroy the hopes of thousands of families but infuriate them as well and there will be massive blowback — and you are so autocratic and unfeeling you not only don't care enough to have public discussions to smooth things over — even if your mind is made up — but you are out of town when the news breaks.

    You might as well let the Trib take a photo of you giving these families the middle finger and run it six columns wide on the front page. Because his action was the equivalent of that.

    There may be good reasons to close some/all of these schools but the fact that he could not be bothered to interact with the people impacted is an act of arrogance so stunning I can barely process it.

    Jon Husted is a dick.

      up these creeps who think they can do this with  impunity.  We need a backlash big enough to start affecting those whose actions are heartless and cruel by making THEIR lives miserable!
