New charter school for at risk youths

    You and your neighbors need to DEMAND CPS send out the head of alternative schools and explain what is happening. Alternative schools are not all the same and you need to know what kind of school is coming. We had Richard Milburn for 1.5 years and had trouble as it is a school for youth who are expelled from CPS and CPS approved alternative schools. It is a school that had to have armed security guards. Once we got on CPS and the archdiocese of Chicago they moved, Many of the churches that once had schools are looking for ways to generate revenue from the spaces since the school closed.

Englewood Principal Chosen for Community Service Honor

It was my pleasure to spend 15 years of my career working under the supervision of Dr. Patrica McCann who is the principal of Benjamin E. Mays Academy. This is an award well deserved.

    What got me was the pic with Ragm. And one can only imagine what will be Jenkin's sermon this Sunday. And Democratic Machineman Brokins...no need to waste words but he'll do what he does best: possum.

    Aren't you sick and tired of being sick and tired of folks taking the intent of charters to make massive amounts of money?
