I would love a charter school. If you want to keep professional with young families in the City you have to offer better school choices. Seems like every month I hear about another family moving to Evanston or beyond becuase of school for their kids. To me it speaks for itself if you open a charter and everyone leaves the local CPS school to go there. Parents aren’t dumb.

Mayor Emanuel: Do you think we are stupid? You don’t want to pay good teachers any more! You want every chicago school to be a charter so you can pay them crap money!

Charter schools are filled with 21 year olds LEARNING how to be teachers. That’s it.

I know from experience that many parents with school-aged children here are desperate for a decent neighborhood school. Based on my New Field experience, I think the Uno school will be a perfect fit for many, who find the idea of sending their child to a neighborhood school post New Field terrifying.

It’s one of the better performing neighborhood schools on the north side…but not for long.
