HarrisCPS12115Govenor Rauner and Republican Leaders unveiled a plan for the state to take over management of CPS. State Senator Napoleon Harris (D-Harvey) released the following statement in response:

“It’s irresponsible for the state to even think about managing CPS. We’re talking about children, poor children, who aren’t being afforded a quality education because they’re not being afforded enough resources,” State Senator Napoleon Harris said. “This would be a good time for the governor and Republican leaders to join the fight for education funding reform. But that’s not what they’re doing. Instead it’s a direct attack against the Chicago Teachers Union at the expense of Chicago children.”
