On Religion, The Media and Life as a 20-something in Chicago

CHICAGO — Many of the mobile classrooms at Elgin School District U46 schools had a fresh coat of red paint on them when Edward Kazanjian visited them in December 2008. But that was like “putting lipstick on a pig,” Kazanjian said. The consultant testified Monday in the racial bias lawsuit trial against the district that a number of the mobiles he visited at U46 elementary schools were not viable and should not be used — and the rest wouldn’t be viable much longer. “They’re not providing good educational space for the kids in there, and my examination of enrollment numbers show they probably didn’t need them in the first place,” Kazanjian said. “Mobiles should be a last resort.” For the rest of the story, visit The Courier-News.
