FUNDING: Where Was Obama On Illinois Funding Gap?

Who cares whether Obama did any good on the board of the Annenberg Challenge, or protected  local control of Chicago schools?  Illinois schools are among the most inequitably funded districts in the nation, as this CBS News segment shows.  Where was Obama?


The funding issue has been highlighted this year by a group of South Side ministers who have conducted high-visibility events -- sending Chicago children to suburban schools to see if they could enroll there (they couldn't), and protesting a Chicago Cubs baseball game (a sacrilege if there ever was one).
