Should schools practice partisan politics? What if Unit 5 sent a letter home with every student blaming Chris Koos’s TIF districts for stealing money from them? It would be true, but should they do it? Of course, Unit 5 had to agree to the TIF districts, so it’s not totally Koos’s fault.
See this letter sent home with students in the City of Chicago, it was written by CEO of the Chicago Public Schools:
Note this letter doesn’t say a word about elected Democrats. It is strictly a partisan attack on Republicans.
