Karen Lewis at the City Club talks smack about Social Impact Bonds. $34 million to Goldman Sachs.






CTU President Karen Lewis at Wednesday’s City Club luncheon.
Cleveland and the Cubs were not the only ones hitting home runs on Wednesday.
On the heels of the 70% vote by CTU members approving the new contract with CPS, Karen Lewis spoke at the City Club of Chicago Wednesday afternoon.
“We can’t get a constitutional amendment on the ballot for a progressive income tax, but we can get one that puts funds for roads in a locked box,” she said.
Count on Lewis to say what others won’t say or can’t see.
Take  the issue of Social Impact Bonds.
Social Impact Bonds are a program that has CPS pay Wall Street’s Goldman Sachs millions of dollars for every child that does not receive special education services.
Lewis forcefully addressed the problem with SIBS at her Wednesday talk at the City Club luncheon.
