Sorry CPS "Graduates"

We guess our "Congratulations CPS Graduates" post was a little premature. It seems the missing test results have surfaced and quite a few people who THOUGHT that they were graduating next week are now being called at home and told to cancel their plans, parties and vacation plans. "The City that Works" and it's various bureacracies in action. It sometimes amazes us that anything besides raising taxes and generating paperwork ever gets done in this town.

Three generations of my middle class family went to a small, now shuttered, Catholic grammer school near Armitage and Pulaski. Besides being white the only thing anyone had in commom was that no one had any money. Yet amongst the St. Philomena Class of 1970 was the future president of the American College of Gatroenterologists,
several lawyers, and this detective and his long suffering wife. The class of 1948 included Gemini astronaut James McDevitt. It still doesn't include any IR's. Beat that Francis Parker. Show me yours Decatur Classical School. Fuck Daley and his tax increase for mules. All the money in the world won't turn a sows ass into a silk purse.

And then there are the ones who got F's in class but scored well enough on the tests (who knows what CPS considers "well enough"), so they get to graduate! God help us all.....

THAT was just related to us by a teacher we know. Students who got A's and B's throughout the year are now going to summer school while others who failed every single test and didn't turn in homework scored well enough to pass into the next grade. Up is Down, In is Out, On is Off. We have truly entered the Looking Glass Alice.

It is an example of a measure of success. Perhaps looking to it can solve the problems of today. If we build two garages and one falls down, which one should be the model for the third garage?
