His "administration championed reforms" Chicago union officials are fighting. They're trying to "preserve" a "status quo" they should oppose.
The Post, Times, and other media scoundrels have things backwards. They support corporate bottom line priorities. They want public education made another profit center.
They want unions busted. They want millions of kids denied futures. They want America made less livable than now. They support an agenda demanding condemnation.
Chicago teachers, parents and students are battling for the soul of Chicago and America. Hopefully they'll stay committed, yield nothing, give Emanuel the fight of his life, go to the wall for what's right, and hold fast for as long as it takes to win.
The stakes are to vital to accept less.
