About those ads …

So the Mayor has now decided – après le strike, as it were – to continue to run hateful ads against the Chicago Teachers Union.

Who are these ads funded by? Hedge fund managers in New York City. Remember them? They’re the ones who crashed our economy in 2008 and 2009. Yeah, they’re people I want to take advice from … and what exactly do hedge fund managers know about education, you may ask?

Well, they know they see an opportunity to make a profit on it.

There will be more on this topic later, as Raise Your Hand sent out an email with a lot of information about who is behind the “education reform” movement that I want to talk about, but here is a petition asking the Mayor to pull these ads.
