Students Strike in Chicago

2 09 2008

I just want to call your attention to the strikes that are going on in Chicago. Students and parents, led by an elected official are protesting the funding disparities between urban and suburban schools. I’m really interested to see what will happen with this.

Specifically, I wish I could be there to watch the fallout from this (AP reporting):

Buses are lined up to take the students to the northern suburb of Winnetka where they’ll attempt to enroll in more affluent schools.
