First, let me state that my son has an IEP – an informed, educated parent. He is at TPS by my choosing so that he can have the education he is entitled to under Federal law – something he will not get at any other public, charter or voucher-funded school. Further this parent is straight-up, from the hood-in-question (29th and Ralston, St. Rita, Douglas Park alum) and proud to be BLACK! My son is equally of color and enrolled at TPS. Why would you assume, being a man of color yourself, that Black parents are not educated, not involved, not present in their children's education? Why assume that we are somehow being blindly led by “white limousine liberals” (whatever that means) and settling for less than the best for our kids? Why are you assuming all of the parents (Black or White) that attend TPS are liberals? To my knowledge, many -- MANY are not. I have had some tell me they actually were supportive of the Mayor ---- until now. And don’t quote me “the all Blacks are liberals.” You’re Black, right? Or are you the only Black person who’s “enlightened enough” to be a conservative thinker?
I’m pretty much done now because I don’t want to have any further hand in boosting your ratings or adding to your conservative street cred.
