Oh good, so it’s okay to increase spending on schools now?

Insert rimshot here.

I’m told the unions are the problem, nothing else!

I can’t watch right now, but is there a reason for this?

How does it correlate with student figures for ethnicity now and then?

Per the story, many Chicago students have moved to charter schools.

Now, if the faculty in the charter schools is 100% not African-American, then the headline is correct. Without that information, it’s not possible to validate.

To be supported by the facts of the article, the headline should read, “Chicago has about 40% fewer African-American public school teachers than in 2001”.
