Thanks Kenyon... Hey where's J.C. Brizard? ... Day 25 for hunger strike





Thanks to Kenyon super Prof. Peter Rutkoff for inviting us to come engage with students at Kenyon College yesterday. Undergrads we met, including some from Chicago, were reading Jonathan Kozol's "Savage Inequalities", analyzing it against conditions in urban schools today, and brainstorming ways to support struggling schools, parents and students in Knox County and other communities in Ohio.



Peter helped to create the college’s interdisciplinary American Studies program in 1990. His books cover subjects such as the origins of Bebop, styles of baseball, and social theory in Europe and America. Some of his titles include: Irish Eyes, New York Modern: The Arts and the City, Shadow Ball: A Novel of Baseball and Chicago, and Cooperstown Chronicles: Camp and Other Love Stories.



Rahm bounced Brizard
CONNECTIONS...Former Chicago schools CEOJ.C. Brizard was a disaster for CPS. He was bounced unceremoniously by Rahm Emanuelto make room for triple disaster, Barbara Byrd-Bennett. But don't worry. His golden parachute landed him on his feet and Brizard will be using his insider connections to try and hustle big consulting contracts Cross & Joftus.



Cross refers to Christopher Cross, a former Education Department assistant secretary who now is connected with the Broad Foundation.



DYETT PARENTS and Chicago community activists are now in the 25th day of Mike Klonsky's SmallTalk Blog: Thanks Kenyon... Hey where's J.C. Brizard? ... Day 25 for hunger strike:
