Democratic Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is following the same thuggish cruelty as Communist China. Bulldozing a school and destroying a community, even though residents had recently received a written agreement that this would not happen. Rahm is going one step further than the Tea Party Republican methods used in other states and cities for dismantling public education in order to profit his investor buddies and campaign contributors. This is all out war against public education as land grabs and other forms of corruption thrive.
This is not education reform. This is savagery.

“But to make way for the thousands of glass and steel high-rises, vast swathes of old buildings have been swept aside – some of considerable historical interest. In the process, critics say, the cities could lose the sense of community.” Read HERE.
Why is this behavior definitely based in greed and corruption?
Give millions to who? From the politicos and appointees to the pockets of the billionaires behind it all.
What about the children?
