Hypocrisy in Action

Jun 24, 2013

Rahm Emanuel came charging out of the gate when he was elected Chicago mayor, claiming he wanted to improve schools.

But Emanuel is now closing 50 schools. He said he had no choice because about half of students do not graduate.

Let’s get this straight: he will cram more students into fewer schools, for a longer day with fewer teachers. Sure doesn’t sound like someone trying to improve graduation rates!
