Doubek: Special Ed Students and Others Deserve Oversight Hearings
Chicago aldermen, stop playing games and start airing it out.
The Sun-Times recently reported that Ald. Ricardo Munoz (22nd) will jump through several parliamentary hoops next week to force Education Committee Chair Howard Brookins (21st) to schedule a hearing he previously canceled about CPS changes to the way it handles special- education students and services for them.
“Parents of special-education children -- and all taxpayers in this city -- are demanding answers, and they’ve waited long enough,” Munoz said in a press release.
