Chicago Sun-Times -- State Sen. James Meeks' Save Our Schools Now campaign wants them to stay away, as he and supporters rally CPS parents toward a massive boycott of CPS' first day of school. Meeks is also pastor of the Far South Side mega-church, Salem Baptist.
"It's our kids that are suffering," Meeks said. "They've suffered for the last 30 years, and now they're producing children whose parents were not educated and so cannot properly educate or provide for their children. That's why we have the social ills. These are children of products of the school system."

Почему только первый день?! Почему не первые десять лет?!

5 - I don't understand. Are you saying that Illinois needs to put more money in Illinois schools? Is that really the state's job?
It should be the state's job to put more money in the public school system. Not every parent can afford to move to a nicer part of town or pay for private school. Out of the 50 states, Illinois ranks 49th as far as putting money in public schools (правда, что ли? Так победим!!! Кто пятидесятый?) That means that other states such as Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, Iowa, Indiana, Wisconsin and even Georgia do a better job of putting more money in the public school system.

8 - My child is in a good school, and doesn't have this problem, so why should I help?
I am glad your child is in a good school, but what about the other 390,000 kids in CPS. Who helps them? The Bible tells us to Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy. Psalms 82:3.
