Sen. Bernie Sanders is now openly criticising current Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel for failing Chicago’s public schools and suppressing video evidence of a teenager’s death at the hands of police.
More than 100 protesters packed City Hall again Thursday with what are now very familiar chants and calls for Mayor Rahm Emanuel to resign.
Pleading guilty, former Chicago Public Schools chief Barbara Byrd-Bennett was indicted for accepting bribes and kickbacks in exchange for lucrative government contracts. Corrupt politicians continue to line their pockets with taxpayer money.
A group of protesters have entered the nineteenth day of a hunger strike to save Dyett High School, the only remaining open-enrollment public high school left in Chicago. Is this Rahm Emanuel push to privatize education?
