More than 500 Teachers at the UNO/Acero charter chain in Chicago went on strike today, the first charter chain strike in history! The Kochs, Waltons etc... showered millions on Rangel and his UNO organization; he paid himself $250,000 a year,. But then things went terribly wrong, and Rangel had to resign. Why? “ Rangel thought charter schools don’t have to play by the same rules as public schools.'” UNO collected a 10% management fee and Rangel hired his relatives for every part of the operation. The state gave him $98 million to build new charters, and UNO handed out fat contracts to friends and relatives, not realizing that the state contracts forbade conflicts of interest. When CTU went on strike in 2012, Rangel boasted that his charters were non-union, were open and had room for new students. No accountability and NO LEARNING for the kids.
