Chicago’s not the only city that has overcrowded schools; it’s just the latest to hit the news. Recently an administrator there lost his job in the name of improving education conditions (Washington Post):

“No Child Left Behind”, huh, George? Well, that’s technically right; these are children, not child.
Between unfunded mandates, “school choice” and general school overpopulation, it seems clear the GOP is at war with public education. I guess home schooling is the only way they’ll get things like “Intelligent Design” taken seriously. That, and of course a radical right-wing outlook.
