Former Huntley School Board Larry Snow has found a chink in the armor of Illinois Democrats.
And from whence did it come?
From newly-elected Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel.
Snow picks up on an April 17, 2011, letter to the Chicago Tribune containing the following gem:
“Nothing is more critical to Chicago’s future than our children’s education. And yet for years we have cheated them.”
And, who has been running Chicago since before I was born?
Here’s another quote from Emanuel:
“It’s no wonder only half of Chicago Public Schools’ students graduate from high school.”
And, who was in charge of Chicago schools?
President Barack Obama’s Secretary of Education, Arn Ducan. From the Department’s web site:
“Prior to his appointment as secretary of education, Duncan served as the chief executive officer of the Chicago Public Schools, a position to which he was appointed by Mayor Richard M. Daley, from June 2001 through December 2008, becoming the longest-serving big-city education superintendent in the country.”
