    and yes, they trot out the "bad apple" theory for police misconduct.

    Double standard.
    Justice for black victims of white police violence find investigations slow and justice rare. Those same slow officers have indicted all of black America in this shooting of Officer Goforth. Wait, a Chicago PD cop shot Laquan McDonald 16 times, we don't even know his name, the CPD have tampered with evidence and the taxpayers have been stuck for $5M while CPD still pays the executioner.

    Chris Rock has often used his comedy to speak truth as he sees it.
    When he was younger, I saw him embarrass old Jesse (BabyDaddy) Jackson with truth. Jackson's response was to give him a noogie while onstage.
    His past comments on some black behavior has often been extremely harsh.
    Same for Bill Cosby. They are humiliated by other black people.
    This is more than a routine. Rock is trying to teach something to morons who have no clue.

    CPS Announces Revised Bus Stops for SY 15-16
    For students, this change will mean traveling an additional two blocks on average to reach their bus stop. Families have been notified of their children's new stop, which in most cases is the bus stop nearest to their home. If they have concerns about their child's assignment, however, parents may choose another nearby option.

    CJ, they’re not using the bus-cutting savings to hire more or better teachers. Casey, when my son was in high school the state was still reimbursing for transit, but that was over a decade ago so you may be correct.

  • @CJ Gladstone.... I may be wrong, but based on memory the CPS busing budget is c $50 million ?? annually. IMO if busing was not a cost item that $50million would not be appropriated and spent on anything.

    Back Story from memory = Chicago arrived at the current busing situation...

    Back Story from memory = Chicago arrived at the current busing situation this way: Someplace c. 1965 Chicago's public schools were found to be separate and unequal, with substantially more being spent on neighborhood schools in white neighborhoods than schools in black neighborhoods (Hispanics, Asians and others did not register at the time). The school system was told to level the spending but that proved too hard to do in an acceptable way. So the court decided to let parents bus their kids to a school of choice, making the disparate spending patterns less motivating/source of complaint. White percentage of students in the system went into rapid decline and now is someplace c 11 - 13% (depends on who's stats you believe). So the courts recently said there was no longer a reason to bus for integration & level spending. But the bus habit remains because some schools/areas are deemed more desirable than others. And by direct awareness in some cases the long bus ride constitutes a free baby sitting service. TL:DR = the CPS tries to budget educational program costs uniformly across the whole City. Separate from that the buses cost c. $50 millions?? a year because of parents chasing after schools with better reputations --- which might or might not be factually supported depending on the compared schools.

    TL:TL:DR Busing is not cutting into staffing.
