Hold the students by the legs and pull. That’s what every Chicago school student should feel like, a wishbone. But they don’t always get what they wish for.
Chicago Public Schools (CPS) are offering job opportunities for city youth while at the same time CPS is going ahead with 100 job cuts at the Central Office, mostly staff positions. This is in order to save $52.3 million. The staff cuts are permanent and the youth jobs are temporary. All this economic back-and-forth with nothing to show for it! [I guess that’s just my opinion.]
