Another Mayoral Triumph

This year, Mayor Mike was able to accomodate 60% of the requests of kids wishing to opt out of failing schools. That's about twice as many as last year.

Unfortunately, there wasn't enough space to accomodate them all. Mayor Mike certainly did his darndest. For example, my school, already at 250% capacity, is slated to get 200 extra students next year. I want to personally thank Mayor Mike for his overwhelming concern, and I have no doubt that he'll be able to squeeze in hundreds, if not thousands more, over the next three years.

Meanwhile, the CFE lawsuit, which promised good teachers, decent facilities, and smaller classes, rots away in limbo due to his unwillingness to pay any percentage of it.

Congratulations, though, to the 5% of city students who managed to get into a good school, like the one in which I work.
