Rahm is Playing the College Kids

  • Emanuel campaigned on a promise to put 1,000 additional police officers on the street. But after taking office, he quickly revised the promise to include 1,000 more officers “on the beat.” He delivered half of those officers by disbanding specialized units. Hundreds of others came from reassigning officers from desk jobs to street duty.
That was a funny one, wasn't it?

Here's the latest funny one:
  • Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s plan to give “B” students free scholarships to attend City Colleges of Chicago is a campaign promise he repeatedly cites in re-election talking points.

    While it’s widely viewed as a free tuition program for those students, a look at the fine print shows it won’t be a cakewalk for graduating Chicago public school seniors.

    An additional testing score required to win the Star Scholarship would rule out more than half of the pool of Chicago Public Schools students who graduated last year with a B average, a Chicago Sun-Times review of the numbers shows.

    That’s because B students must also score at least a 21 on both the math and English sections of the ACT. This extra qualification alone cuts out more than half of the pool of more than 5,264 students who graduated from CPS in 2014 with B averages.
Funny how none of those "conditions" made it into the initial reports about Rahm giving everyone a free ride to college, but now suddenly, it's media fodder. We're trying to decide who' playing who here - Rahm, attempting to appear fiscally responsible at the last moment to garner more votes or the Sun Times attempting to swing the B-students and their families into voting for Chewie because of a "broken" promise.

Rahm said he'll hire 1000 cops and instead shuffled the deck while eliminating 1500 police positions from the budget.

Rahm vowed to take your pensions away.

You sheep will still vote for him. Cowards.

If Rahm wins, I don't want to read ONE gripe on this Blog.

You deserve ALL the crap you get.

Watching this from another county - AND BELIEVE ME, I am glad I moved out of Crook County 20 years ago, - ALL I see are a bunch of whiny sheeple bitching about their working conditions and their neighborhoods, but when it comes to vote for change, you vote to retain corruption and arrogance.

WHY?

And all you who think you're smarter by saying stuff like, "I'm voting for the lesser of two evils if I vote for Rahm" or "Don't vote the other guy in, or the City will go to shit".

ARE YOU Fu$KING KIDDING ME???

NEWS FLASH: The City has already gone to shit and the way you vote out bad government is that you don't re-elect the jerk that was in.

Maybe you never learned that seeing that you keep the same Democrats in power, so maybe it's too late.

Just don't come on this Blog and whine about your job, your pensions, or your neighborhoods. YOU voted for it.

Oh and don't come to me to "bail you out". I would rather see the CIty declare bankruptcy and negate ALL the pensions.

TACIT. ADMISSION. ALERT!

What this statement confirms is that more than half of CPS "B" students are much dumber than one would be led to believe.

CHEW ON THIS LITTLE MATHMETICAL EQUATION: 36/21

requiring applicants to score at least a 21 to be eligible for "free" college means they have to score ONLY a 58.33% (the top ACT score is 36).

Soooooooo.... "B" students should have no problem pulling the equivalent of an "F", right? RIGHT?

Shit, according to Wikipedia: "The typical grades awarded from participation in a course are (from highest to lowest) A, B, C, D, and F. Variations on the traditional five grade system allow for awarding A+, A, A−, B+, B, B−, C+, C, C−, D+, D, D−, and F. D− is sometimes omitted, under the assumption that anything less than a D is by definition, failure. In primary and secondary schools, it is also uncommon for a D to be considered passing, so the general standard is that anything below a 60 or 75 is failing, depending on the grading scale. In college and universities, a D is considered to be an unsatisfactory passing grade; the student gains credit for the class but cannot move on to more advanced classes until a C or better is obtained".

It's no secret that a dumbed-down curriculum and routine fudging of grades is common practice in the majority of CPS schools. The fabrication and reporting of good grades results in grants, scholarships, awards and other niceties otherwise unattainable if there exists even a modicum of legitimacy in the system. Same flavor with those 'First Day' attendance statistics...all bullshit to reap taxpayer-funded "freebies".

Think of this phenomenon as the CPS equivalent of our "merit" promotional process - a bunch of undeserving jackasses recklessly promoted beyond their abilities.

As long as the "Gibsmedat" segment is pacified, the dumbing-down of another generation continues unabated. Just as they want it.

Fuck you, Rahm.

Rahm Emanuel doesn't have it in him to speak openly and honestly as men should speak when conducting the taxpayer's financial and legislative business.

"The Art of The Deal" for it's name's sake which distills to abject and utter FUCKERY when viewed through the eyes of the Everyman...

This sense of always trying to put one over on everybody else to prove once and for all to you churls and peed-on peons that he really IS the smartest m/fer in the room.

Weasel Speak.
Slippery Syntax.
Exquisitely Minced Word Salad
with a mystery coated contradiction
in every fucking bite.

Four years in office and this twisted little fuck
has given nary a straight and forthright answer
to a single mutha-jumpin' question...

But he spits words of iron, fire and death regarding
Police pensions while planting wet smoochies on
the asses of his millionaire and billionaire campaign
contributors whom he has blessed with billions in city
business while wheel barrows of money to the tune of $30+ Million are being hustled in through the back door by some of the same bastards who were made
filthy stinking rich(er) by Shortshanks.

Rahm employs:
Wildly gyrating, exquisitely tortured words, terms and definitions that intentionally mean nothing close to what they used to mean.

The man doesn't have a genuine human bone or a heart in his mummified, Boris Karloff on a coke binge body.

He radiates hatred and outsized animus toward all who aren't him and all who don't share his vision of progressive/neo-corporatist Elysium, Utopia, Nirvana or whatever the fuck it is he imagines in that feverish brain of his...

You can be damned sure that he has no plans for Policemen to be there sullying his view of what he has in mind.

Rahm al-Ghoul for a reason...

A little over 52 hours to go.
This IS a fight for the soul of this city.

The people truly invested in this town versus those who don't live here but are crowd-funding the North Shore Shit-Ass so they can drift in like vultures, fly off
with the select parts and leave people who have worked and scuffled for years with nothing.

Timed to be executed when the Federal Investigatory clock finally times out so none of THEM has to worry about forced seating on the federal bus regarding the excesses during the Daley Inc. years.

No worries about the Rahm & Co years,
"Himself" has that covered so the truly
dirty financial crime committing m/fers
who have been looting the municipal
treasury for the last quarter century
will have de facto immunity to move
With impunity.

"If only we can get the greedy, Union member Cops
and Firemen to take pay cuts, give back some of their
cush $100k pensions and sweet early retirement at age 55 to 60, this city wouldn't be in such a financial
mess... Rahm is tough! He's taking them on and making them take cuts. Hopefully he'll make them all
work and not get a penny until they're 70. We don't have secure pensions so why should they?"

Nothing more galling that being busted down to parity with the Shitbirds we've fought for years.

Maybe good, decent law-abiding citizens should emulate the armed wing of the catered to constituency
because the media, politicians and the neo-corporatist vultures view THEM as a more credible threat to flip the fucking table than good, decent law-abiding citizens who happen to be Policemen, Firemen, teachers, etc...

Shitbirds aren't losing a second of sleep over this...

Priorities eh?

I don't like Garcia. But Rahm doesn't deserve to win. He lied when he first ran when he said he will hire 1000 coppers. He instead shuffled the deck and put 500 or so coppers on the street that were previously working in administrative positions. He not only lied about hiring the 1000, he then went and reduced the size of the Department by 1,200-1,500 Officers. He has just about destroyed Chicago's credit rating. He has hidden who knows how much money in the TIF account while he lies about the city finances and warns about a massive tax increase if the City is forced to follow the law and fund pensions even though he has the money. He has done NOTHING to make this City better place to live. He has not beautified it or make it more attractive to encourage people to move here. He is a liar and a carnival huckster.
So I will vote for Garcia. But I will hold my nose when doing it and hope that if he turns out to be what I think he will that the voters will get rid of him in four years. But Rahm has not earned my vote or yours.

If Rahm really wanted to do something for the children and trim some fat, he would order CPS to do away with positions entitled 'Resource/Collaborative Teacher'.

In these type of positions, connected teachers who can't get hired as regular teacher or don't want to teach anymore work outside the classroom in 'cream puff' positions like:

- Attendance Clerk
- 'In-School' Suspension Monitor
- Athletic Director
- Test Prep Coordinator
- Security
- Community Liaison
- Recruiter
- Admission Reps
- School Clerk
- Dean
- Shipping/Receiving
- Business Manager
- Bookeeper
- Programming

All of these positions, except for Dean and 'In-School' Suspension Monitor, don't require a teacher certification and could easily be manned by someone without any teacher certifications for half the cost of salary and benefits.

Though, Lane College Prep HS employs a Dean (Norman Milsap)who works under the position of Student Special Services Advocate for $60,000 + $30,000 in benefits and Milsap doesn't have any teacher certifications. And, his wife Jane Milsap works as a PE Teacher at Lane for $70,000 + $30,000 in benefits. How does this happen?

Also, a security guard could easily be used as an 'In-School' Suspension Monitor for a 1/3 of the cost it takes to pay a certified teacher to be a babysitter all day for the bad kids.

Case in point of waste for CPS: Taft High School is bellying aching about not having a 2nd librarian because of budgetary concerns. But, instead Taft is paying Gary Longo (brother of 'Vote Fraud King' Dominic Longo) $90,000/year + $30,000 in pension/medical benefits/year to work as an Attendance Clerk under the guise of Resource/Collaborative Teacher. Longo's $120,000 package could hire TWO 'non-certified' employees to help with Taft's overcrowded situation in undermanned positions around school.

The City Colleges of Chicago are a joke. All of the so called improvements are cosmetic. Students in need of remedial education are being pushed towards graduation. The non-academic chancellor (a former bankrupt) has an expansive suburban residence in Lansing, but claims to be Chicago resident due to an apartment rental. Seventy percent of classes are taught by poorly paid part-time instructors who have not had a new union contract in three years. The nepotism and cronyism that goes on at the district offices rivals anything at the College of Du Page, but the media does not want to expose any of it.

Yes, you are correct. A 21 on the ACT, although a low score is enough to get admittance to secondary schools*( i.e. B grade institutions) such as you have listed. However, you need money to do this. The schools that you mentioned, although state supported schools still are expensive for many people. Young people go to city colleges for the first 2 years because their families do not have the money.

The product that the Chicago public schools turn out is pretty poor and pathetic. The teachers blame the kids and the kid's families for this saying they have little to work with. This might be true in a small percentage, but the teachers have a good deal and Karen Lewis wants to make it even better, even to the point of bankrupting the school system. I hope the state legislature takes away the right to strike from all public employees and teachers are finally held accountable for their work product. The teacher's union is ruining the city and state and this is not just a problem in Illinois. End tenure and the right to strike.

A national benchmark like the ACT is needed because Chicago schools have huge grade inflation. Just look at the Chicago high school to college performance. The Chicago school kids drop at least 0.5 on GPA. The results were published a couple of years ago...after the Illinois government held back the release for a couple of years. Grades are worthless at CPS.

A 21 on the ACT is around 56th percentile. You are not really a B student if you can't score a 21.

Michael Bloomberg reportedly 'considering' running for mayor of London

April 05, 2015

"A former New York City mayor is reportedly being persuaded to run next year in the London mayoral election by prominent government officials across the Atlantic.

"The Sunday Times of London...reports that Michael Bloomberg is “considering” running...in next year’s election in London.

"Powerful Brits are apparently publicly backing the idea...Steve Hilton, a top adviser to British Prime Minister Cameron, is urging Bloomberg to run.

“It would be an incredible coup for London."

"After his term as New York’s mayor ended in 2013, Bloomberg built a two-tower skyscraper on the site of Roman temple ruins and owns a $20 million town house in London and even sits on the board of the Serpentine Galleries.

"He was dubbed an honorary knight by Queen Elizabeth III in 2013... Bloomberg has also called Britain his “second home.”

"For Bloomberg to run he would have to become a citizen of the country of the European Union, a prerequisite for running for mayor.

"Wealthy foreigners could fast-track applications for British residency by investing $15 million in the country...

"A source told the Sunday Times that they did not think it would be a problem.

"Both of Bloomberg’s daughters are British citizens and his ex-wife Susan Brown was born in the UK."

There is nothing more motivating than investing your own money.

And we all know what free means, every asshole in the world comes to partake, ruining it for everyone else.

Just this moment heard on radio news -- Garcia said "I can't say exactly everything I might have to do when I walk in that door. When you buy a house, you have to look at the plumbing and inspect for termites first."

!!!

Shine the light under there...jeez! Boy, has Chicago got termites! All the toilets are backing up, too.

Need to spray that stuff all around the foundation before the whole place collapses, and rod out the line all the way to the street. You go, guy!

Can't help but wonder if the place is too far gone for the stick framed plastic tent and spray solution...

Turn off the utilities, plug every hole, block the sewer lines, wedge the windows and doors so nothing can escape then be biblical...

Purify it with seven days of hot fire.
Them yellowish-white flames...

When the flames die down, mix rock salt with the ashes and let it sit for seven years.

The City Colleges of Chicago are a joke. All of the so called improvements are cosmetic. Students in need of remedial education are being pushed towards graduation. The non-academic chancellor (a former bankrupt) has an expansive suburban residence in Lansing, but claims to be Chicago resident due to an apartment rental. Seventy percent of classes are taught by poorly paid part-time instructors who have not had a new union contract in three years. The nepotism and cronyism that goes on at the district offices rivals anything at the College of Du Page, but the media does not want to expose any of it.

You're both wrong. The 21 corresponds to your rank on a bell curve; in other words, in comparison to all the other students who took the test.

Getting a 21 means you rank in the 56th percentile of all test takers, meaning you scored better than 55% of all takers of the test.

In other words, requiring a 21% is asking that the student be just a liiiiiittle bit better than average.

While that's not a high bar to clear, it's a far cry from scoring an F.

=============================

Wrong. The 21 corresponds to your rank in comparison with all students nationwide who took the test that year. You're organized into a bell curve and that's all that is important.

A 21 places you into the 56th percentile nationwide, meaning that you scored higher than 55% of the people who took the test that year.

While that's still a pretty lax requirement for a full scholarship, it doesn't equate with getting an "F" - it's really a "C" if you want to think about it that way.

Sounds like the answer was bitter. Thanks for playing and not answering my question. Just because in your general experience with the CPS has been negative doesn't mean that cutting money and livable wages is the answer. You must work in or around people in the school system but not in the system yourself. I see posts like your original one and get irritated at misinformation you put out there. Face to face I could address all of your concerns, but on here just know that accountability for every city agency is key, not reducing the money allotted or salaries. Many people on this blog are paying a lot of money in tuition, not for better teachers (I was in private school 8/12 years), but for smaller class sizes, more individualized attention , and the ability of the school to remove problem students and disruptions. If you knew the amount of red tape and the severity of discipline infractions that need to be documented for CPS to even suggest expulsion hearing you would not sound so confident in your post. Do you know what due process is? least restrictive environment? High school and grade school tardiness and attendance is a huge problem because these parents do not invest (tuition) there is no real interest to support the school or child.

CPS teachers and staffers = Great pay with plenty of excuses is how I read it. And, when these people are asked to work they get pissed as going from doing little or no work to actually working will piss people off.

Let's go back to salaries....Did you know there's plenty of CPS staffers without a college degree, or some without any college experience, and they're calling the shots or in control of CPS students. What are these staffers making to work in jobs like recruiter, admissions rep, community liaison, student advocate, etc.? Try $55,000 + handsome benefits.

Or, let's look at some of the school clerks. Gone are the days of the little old lady with her hair in a bun and who works from the time they walk in until the time they leave. Today, clerks are all about connections and good pay with only having a high school degree or GED.

Clerk II positions ($30,000-$35,000 range + benefits) are actually affordable in salary. But, Clerk I positions are a waste of the taxpayers' money to do the same exact work as a Clerk II. I know of 4-5 Clerk 1's who don't have any college experience (let alone a degree) and after 5 years on the job they're making $50,000 +$25,000 in benefits. This when a Clerk II, who's doing the same work is still making in the 30's. How does this happen?

One Clerk I stands out to me. She's 27 years old, she graduated from Kelvyn Park HS (that institution of great educational success.....NOT!!), she couldn't handle working in a grade school as a Clerk II, and so she used some connection and got promoted to Clerk I to work at a high school. Reports from teachers and other staffers is she gossips, shops and watches Spanish soap operas online, and texts all day while pulling in $50,000 + benefits. Then, she complains about how she wants a raise because she does too much work.

CPS is loaded with employees like this Clerk I and don't tell me they're not. If you do, you're either a liar, are one of them, or don't pay attention to anything around you.

Hell, most of these CPS employees without even minimal college experience didn't want to be in school when they were students and now they're in charge. That doesn't make sense.


Also, no matter what I answer, you'll never be happy as I'm no shill for CTU like you. People talk about the CPD's code of silence, what about the code of silence which goes on throughout CPS for inept teachers, unqualified staffers, and stooge-like administrators.

FOUR more years of Rahm means the end to the CPS fiefdom's draining taxpayers' pockets. I would suggest polishing up your resume. I hear Harold's Chicken is hiring for shift managers.

Wow, racist and bitter. I'm white stupid. Have fun making less for more work (whatever you do besides complain).
