ChicagoMag Followup Questions
There's a vibrant discussion about the Chicago Magazine profile of Ron Huberman going on down below, but in the meantime I have some other questions that came up from the profile but aren't directly related. If you know the answers, please share what you know.
-- What is Huberman import Barbara McDonald going to do for CPS (she came with him from CPD)
? I'm curious about what her portfolio is going to be.
-- Where does this guy Adam Case fit in the communications operation, esp. in re Monique Bond?
Does Case work for Bond, or vice versa?
-- Whatever happened to the 6 schools that Huberman took of the Duncan list of 22 that should be closed?
Who were they and did they do any better on this year's ISATs?
-- Mike Klonsky is now a DePaul professor? I have no objections, but I did not know this.
-- CPS eliminated low-performing after-school programs based on a Huberman review? What does this refer to? I thought that was ISBE's job to rate the after school providers.
-- Whatever happened to the review of 800 cases of teachers hitting kids that was done?
