Vallas Goes Full Scare Tactics
How far the reformer has fallen:
- Gov. Pat Quinn’s running mate Wednesday predicted “devastating cuts” to education across Illinois, including an $882 million hit to Chicago's public schools, if Republican Bruce Rauner’s tax-cut plan is carried out.
- Vallas' analysis showed Chicago, with the state’s largest school system, would face the most sizeable reduction in funds under Rauner’s plan – a loss that the Chicago Democrat said almost certainly could lead to more crippling school closures across the city, though Vallas would not specify a number.
“It means more school closings. It means major teacher layoffs. It means huge class sizes. It means more school consolidations. It means an elimination of curriculum, of supplemental educational services. It means, at the high school level, a dismantling of vocational technical education, early college programs, school-to-work programs,” Vallas said.
You mean....like the closings and layoffs that Rahm has been presiding over? Those cuts? It continues to amaze all thinking people that democrats seem to be the cause and solution to all Illinois' problems.
