CPS creating safety routes for kids heading to new schools

Post by Abdul Alhazred »

Background:

CPS == Chicago Public Schools

The problem:
Declining population (and budget) driving school closings.

The solution (1):
Same number of students, same number of teachers, fewer and fuller school buildings.
Really still no problem finding a school within kid walking distance.

The issues:
Well for one thing, it means laying off principals and administrators.
So you have a lot of political posturing using the children as ideological human shields.

But the parents' very real concern is physical safety getting to new schools.

The solution (2):

Chicago Sun Times

Good that they are doing this, but it tells you something about the nature of Chicago.

There will be safe routes, but in effect the police have already ceded territory to criminal gangs, even though they will create a corridor.

If it's too obscure even for me, it's really really too obscure.

Did you mean Al Capone? HE was a "furniture salesman", or at least it said so on his business card anyway. Al Bundy was a shoe salesman.
