The [Monday] Papers

"More than 20,000 deportation cases are pending in Illinois immigration courts, a number almost five times higher than the number of cases a decade ago," the Tribune reports.

The president we already have.

He Forgot Public Relations
"Speaking at a recent Chicago Police Department awards ceremony, [Mayor Rahm] Emanuel talked about 'the five P's' that are important elements of fighting crime in Chicago," the Tribune reports.

"I've always believed [in] the five P's: police officers, parents, principals, pastors and public officeholders."

Pastors when it comes to black folk, that is. When he talks to his advisors, he replaces that one with "polling," and when he talks to white folk he replaces that with "privilege."

Walstate
"Though the [Illinois State Charter School Commission] is a government agency, its initial funding came from private organizations and individuals, including the Walton foundation," the Sun-Times reports.

Um, what?

"Current and former commission leaders say they sought grants because state lawmakers didn't provide funding when they created the agency."

And who did state lawmakers seek funding from? The very folks who also fund the organizations to be regulated by the commission!

"Over the past 20 years, the Walton foundation has given more than $45 million to educational groups in Illinois, including charter schools and the state commission that regulates them, records examined by the Sun-Times show."

The Walton foundation is the Walmart foundation, in case you don't know.

Next: The Walton foundation funds the Illinois Department of Labor.

When "Choice" Trades One Bad School For Another
"In Chicago, researchers had an unusual opportunity to study, over several years, how publicizing information about school quality influenced where families enrolled their children," according to a report from last September.

"And they found that many families did pull their children out of failing schools.

"But they usually ended up in ones that were just as bad, or only slightly better. Astonishingly, more than 25 percent of the transfer students moved to another school that was also on the city's probation list of failing schools."
