Chicagoist: Tribune Looks At The Mismanagement That Led To CPS' Historic School Closures

[VIDEO] Recently we got wind of this Tribune story via the Chicagoist blog. The point it to look at the financial mismanagement of the Chicago Public Schools. A lot of people are still upset about the school closings that took place this past summer, however, one of the justifications for the closings were that the schools were underutilized.

Chuck Sudo at Chicagoist further opines: "If you want to know why Johnny can't read, it's because CPS officials don't know how to maintain a sensible budget."

The video above shows what the city is spending money on. It started with the old CPS HQ on Pershing Road. If I recall correctly they bought this complex from army for $1 and now their HQ is in downtown. It appears the city still owns this complex and now there isn't a plan for its utilization. Apparently the city is still spending money on it.

What do you make of this?
