One Year Later...what happened to the adult staff dismissed by Chicago Public Schools?
In June, 2012 CPS implemented turnaround for 10 schools and simply handed them over to non-profits who made application with CPS to obtain funding facilitated via Illinois State Board of Education formerly headed up by Jesse Ruiz (CPS Board Member).
What happened to the adult staff members, many tenured teachers, who were removed from their positions at these schools?
We welcome hearing your stories that will add a human touch to dedicated educators sacrificed so that CPS could obtain much needed funding for capital improvements and then simply turned over the buildings to politically connected non-profits not subject to public accountability or scrutiny (FOIA and OMA).
