Below is a statement from mayoral candidate Gery Chico, who spent six years as president of Chicago Public Schools, in response to Mr. Emanuel's education plan:

"Today, Rahm Emanuel announced his education plan, which is as light as cotton-candy, and contains few details and little substance. If Rahm believes this paper-thin approach to education reform will truly help our children, he ought to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with me at one of the debates this week and defend his plan.

"My education plan, which can be viewed in full at, provides a detailed, comprehensive roadmap that will truly transform our children's future. While some of the broad concepts Rahm mentioned are consistent with what I have already addressed in detail in my plan, Rahm's proposal is overall disappointing because it aims so low."
