Mayor And School Officials Exclude Media From Meeting About School Addition
WBEZ this week released an investigation that shows Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel spends millions on new school buildings and annexes that largely benefit white and middle-class students. He is now announcing more of those projects--just not publicly. Media were excluded from a meeting at Skinner Elementary that included elected members of the local school council. A lawyer with the Better Government Association if a majority of council members were there, the exclusion violates state law.
