Watch this powerful video about evading truth. Lawyer Matt Farmer bristled when Penny Pritzker evaded a question asking her to describe what Chicago students need, saying! ' They need enough skills in reading, mathematics, and science to be productive members of the workforce.' He wonders: 'Why no mention of the arts, of music, of physical ed?' So he cross-examined Pritzker in absentia. The members of the board of education and the mayor have a special responsibility to do what is right for the children in their care. They should not inflict policies on other people’s children that are unacceptable for their own kids!Her own children ( & Mayor Emanuel's attend the U of Chicago Lab School that has a rich curriculum, not merely preparation for the workforce. Children get the arts and phys ed there every day. Mayor Emanuel sends his children there, too. Arne Duncan is a graduate.'
