(Chicago) Mayor Rahm Emanuel is shaking up his school board in the wake of the federal investigation that forced out his school CEO.
Emanuel is replacing a U.S. Senate candidate, a retired Northwestern University president, a teacher and an education consultant with a retired banker, a retiring Loyola University President, a school foundation president and a CPS principal.
Teachers union vice president Jesse Sharkey is not impressed.
“It still lacks parent-community input and voice and I would’ve liked to have seen a clean sweep and do a completely new board,” Sharkey said. “I know that there are still a few people who remain. It’s likely to be more of the same.”
Sharkey says what Chicago needs is an elected school board but the mayor is adamantly opposed to that.
