The [Monday] Papers

"CPS frequently says it wants more input from parents and communities about how it educates nearly 400,000 children," Lauren FitzPatrick writes for the Sun-Times.

"The district touts its many ways for the public to weigh in, and said it has made recent improvements while remaining open to more.

"But when newly appointed board president Frank Clark told one speaker [last week], 'This is a board that truly listens,' laughter broke out."

Aside from the fact that Clark and the new board just installed by Mayor Rahm Emanuel haven't been on the job long enough to make such a claim, it became patently clear last week that such a claim is patently absurd.

In fact, hard as it is to believe, the new board is even worse than the last one, having further limited public participation by changing the rules without notice. Chicago Public Schools has, in effect, become a private operation.

"Clark did not respond to e-mails seeking comment."
