Mayor-elect Rahm Emanuel named Rochester, N.Y., schools Supt. Jean-Claude Brizard on Monday as Chicago’s new schools chief. Jean-Claude Brizard has an education and business background. Emanuel said he didn’t end up having to pick between an educator and a manager in deciding to bring in Brizard.“Choosing between a manager and an experienced educator is a false choice,” Emanuel said. He said Brizard has shown himself to be both an excellent teacher “and a proven manager.”
Why does City Colleges of Chicago have a Chancellor without an education background and no proven leadership experience? Cheryl Hyman only had a good story (from Rags to Riches)... she only had one year experience as a Vice President at ComEd, no education background, and no doctorate degree (despite the robe she will wear during graduation). Students deserve better...we deserve better.
Student's we want to praise and applaud you for your demonstration last week! Here's a few clips from Friday's protest.
