Capitol Fax: CPS testifies against elected school board

For those of you who support an election Chicago Board of Education there's some news. And it appears officials (or even former officials) with Chicago Public Schools don't want this bill to pass in Springfield.

For example:
"I'm not here to make a generalization about elected versus appointed school boards and its impact in any school district," [CPS Chief Education Officer Janice Jackson] told a House panel. "But I am here to say that for Chicago Public Schools, we have been governed in a particular way — and that is being threatened. And I believe that there will be an impact on academic outcomes because of the lack of stability.
What are they scared of?
