>>CPS CEO Blasts Rauner Over Comments About District
Chicago Public Schools CEO Forrest Claypool is blasting Governor Rauner for comments he made about the district this week. The governor blamed Mayor Emanuel for causing a financial crisis at CPS. During a school board meeting yesterday, Claypool called Rauner’s assertion “a statement of ‘Alice in Wonderland’ absurdity.” The governor’s office fired back saying the CEO should look in the mirror after presenting a budget that included 215-million dollars not approved by the state.Filed under Local News, News 2014, News 2015 | Comment (0)
