Focus on School Funding
Joyce from my Saturday BUILD group sent me a link to this article from the Chicago Sun-Times. On Friday Jesse Jackson, Sr. and Arne Duncan, CEO of Chicago Public Schools, were scheduled to hold a news conference at the Board of Education headquarters about school funding. Surprisingly they were joined by Mayor Daley and Jesse Jackson, Jr. Jesse, Jr. has talked about challenging Mayor Daley in the mayoral race. It is encouraging that these politicians recognize the importance of this issue and are competing for the limelight on the issue.
