Freebies for the U of C charter network while CPS goes begging.

I ran into so many friends at the CTU march yesterday and met so many more new friends who read this blog.

It is gratifying.

Among the old friends was Alderman Sue Garza of the 10th Ward.

Sue had just spent the day in a meeting of the Chicago City Council Housing Committee.

“How’d it go?” I asked.

She gave me a frown.

Today she posted:

I sit on the Housing Committee and yesterday the University of Chicago Charter school network came before the committee and asked to negotiate a sale for 19 city lots in the Woodlawn neighborhood for $1 dollar to build a Charter school.

On the same agenda I had a constituent that had a negotiated sale for 1 city lot on 88th and Mackinaw for $8000.

How can we justify this?
