Meeks All Over the Map
Meeks and several supporters met Senate colleague Jeff Schoenberg (D-Wilmette) and north suburban school and police officials at the Northfield police station. They then took a bus tour of the elementary and high school campuses in New Trier Township which are expected to be the focus of the protest.
Meeks said the intent was to get a better sense of the logistics that would be involved in bringing the students to the North Shore to attempt to register for classes.
He said he saw no point in bringing students to the suburbs before Chicago's opening day of school, Sept. 2, even though most north suburban districts are starting school this week or next.
“If we'd had them here today, no one would have paid attention to it,” Rev. Meeks said, explaining his decision not to try to begin classes on the same timetable as north suburban students.
You want to make school funding more "equitable," change the formula. We have 30 years of data backing up the assertion that throwing money at CPS doesn't work.
