Chicago Community Leaders Go Under The O-Bus

Good heavens. The Chicago riff-raff actually thinks they have a place at the table with Obama’s education reformers? It was bad enough they had to put up with the little people when they were back in Chicago. It isn’t as if the people have anything to offer this administration. They already know so much better than us. That’s what led them to cause this problem in the first place. Change!: Not!

Community leaders and parents outside Fenger are in disbelief that they are not at the breakfast table with Arne Duncan and Eric Holder.

Attorney General Holder and Secretary of Education Duncan are in town to speak, ostensibly, with the community about youth violence — a blight on Chicago neighborhoods so vividly brought to national attention by the videotaped beating of Derrion Albert.

“They are meeting about us without us,” said Phillip Jackson of the Black Star Project, a Chicago-based educational reform organization.

Duncan and Holder’s meeting at the Four Seasons also includes Mayor Daley, Pastor Michael Pfleger, CEO of Chicago Public Schools Ron Huberman, and Police Superintendent Jody Weis.
