1/ I get the characterization of remote learning as a win.
It makes sense only bc our country has allowed politicians to turn the safety & mortality of human beings into a political contest. #COVID19#SafeReopening2/ Students, community groups, parents, and @CTULocal1 organized to force the mayor into making the best decision.
We shouldn’t have had to make her make that decision. An #ERSB should hv made the decision already. But, this is Chicago. #MakeItMakeSense

#Thread Mayoral control of #CPS has been an unmitigated disaster—#Daley, #RahmHatesUs & #MLL. Mayoral control has failed every single stakeholder in #CPS. #ERSBNow 1/#MayoralControl has birthed some of the worst EDU policies ever.
50 schools closed.
Failed privatization schemes.
Scores of Black women educators fired.
Schools w/o nurses.
Schools w/o libraries & librarians.
The list is seems endless. #MakeItMakeSense 2/

...the meme is racist. Not the murder. Not the coerced confessions. Not the unjust decades long prison sentences. Not the abuse. Not the brutality. Not the murder. The meme. Got it.
“The Chicago Teachers Union has always fought to make big changes. Collectively, we have fought against racial and economic disparities, attempts to close and privatize our public schools, and powerful special interests,” CTU Vice President Stacy Davis Gates said.
“And now, our fight for high-quality schools and thriving neighborhoods take us to the ballot box. And let’s be real, our nation needs a political revolution.

#Thread (a very long one) Yesterday, I visited the new Englewood STEM High School. Remember the close 4 high schools and open 1 high school deal #MRE hand-picked BOE (not to be confused w/ #MLL unelected BOE) approved in 2018 against community wishes? Yes, that one!
2/ Driving up to the school I saw bleachers, a football field, a track, & then the modern structure that houses 400+ freshman students. Nice.

#Thread 1/ #ME: Feeling a way about the incuriosity/obvious bias in the press. Thought I'd annotate an article with my thoughts/analysis.
