Video column: Mark Brown on changing the Chicago Board of Education

| No Comments

Sun-Times columnist Mark Brown has been against the idea of an elected school board in Chicago. Until Wednesday, May 22. That's the day that the Chicago Board of Education, appointed by Mayor Rahm Emanuel, in nearly the blink of an eye, voted to close 50 public schools in the city.

Mark wrote about his change of heart on an appointed body. Here he discusses why he sees need for a change.
