Does GCA understand education? I don't think so

I received an email from the Greather Chatham Alliance(formerly WIM) and it was nothing less than a fear mongering letter on the state of our local schools. After reading the letter I looked at the data they were basing their opinions on. The document you see has several omission such as it doesn't list Burnside, Gillespie and McDade. BTW, McDade was named one of the best elementary schools in the city by Chicago Magazine. Also it doesn't list Harlan on the High School side.

Why hasn't GCA been involved in the education conversation in the ward? Why all of a sudden now? Why did their former president call Dixon students"dirty little thieves"? What do you think.

Again, we would love to hear what the candidates have to say.
