It was a great weekend. Unfortunately, that meant only 1 post for the weekend instead of 3. I don’t have anything of major importance today, but there are definitely some smaller stories.
“The Chicago Public Schools system, in coordination with Chicago Department of Public Health and Illinois Caucus of Adolescent Health, has created an online and interactive sex education resource for students, SexEdLoop.com.“
Quoting this lacks impact because the best information is in charts. However, it clearly shows that top schools have 200 square feet per student, while CPS uses a formula of 96 square feet for children.
“This new process alienates most people,” said Katelyn Johnson, executive director of the community organization Action Now. “The board meetings were already ridiculously inaccessible, with people sometimes having to sleep over in order to get a chance to speak. This is on top of the fact that they are held downtown during hours when most people are at work. Having online registration adds another hoop to jump through, creating more distance between the already out-of-touch board and the community, parents and students.”
