1/4 While @chicagosmayor and @GovPritzker focus on name calling ("racists" "fear mongers" and "carnival barkers") and push failed #crime and #COVID19 polices, this is what's happening in #Chicago. 196 youth dead from homicide vs. 9 from Covid since March 2020. #twill #Illinois Image
2/4 Carjackings are at 5 a day – 1 every 5 hours. Neither @chicagosmayor nor @GovPritzker have a plan to stop them... Carjackings now 3X what they were when both took office in 2019. And 3/4 of them are "aggravated," meaning weaponized.

3/4 @chicagosmayor and @GovPritzker have lost control of timely police responses to critical, urgent #911 calls. In 2021, there was no #police available to respond to more than 400,000 priority 1 and 2 police dispatches.

4/4 Under @GovPritzker's and @chicagosmayor's lax crime policies, the number of #Illinois police killed while on active duty jumped to 5 in 2021, the 4th-highest in country. Only #Texas, #Florida and #Georgia had more, based on FBI data.

A THREAD 1/11: Poor student achievement and near-zero accountability: An indictment of #Illinois’ public education system. A @Wirepoints Report.

7% of Rockford black, 16% of Decatur white, and 11% of Elgin Hispanic 3rd-graders read at grade level.

2/11: The Decatur Public School District is arguably the poster child of the failures of Illinois' educational system. Just 2% of black 3rd-graders can read at grade level.

It’s not much better for whites. Only 16% of whites are proficient in reading.
3/11: The white scores in Decatur are so low that the district has achieved a perverse form of “equity”: all students, regardless of color, are failing.

The district’s black/white math achievement gap is 10 percentage points, far less than the 30 point statewide gap.
