FY12 Budget

Take back TIF funds

Mr. Brizard,

 

While it is a step in the right direction that your boss has made use of TIF funds more transparent it does little to solve the problem. There are still many millions of dollars diverted from the public schools to serve private developers. Take back the funding that is rightfully ours and balance the books the right way. Instead of fighting against the educators of Chicago you should be fighting for us. Stand-up to your boss and tell him to give back the TIF money that rightfully belongs to CPS.

 

Regards,

A parent, CPS teacher, and property owner

Longer School Day

A longer day and higher teacher compensation

Yes, a longer school day is needed. Teachers & other staff should be compensated accordingly & should be part of the discussion. Please treat our teachers with the respect they deserve. A solid plan is needed & funding is necessary to make the most of the extra time. 6.5 hours MAX for elementary students.
