Big moment for Chicago schools

Chicago Tribune:

Chicago’s school reform movement faces one of the most important moments in its too-short history. Don’t underestimate what’s happening right now. The future of a school system with 415,000 children is at stake.
Here’s why:
The most powerful and persistent champion of Chicago school reform, Mayor Richard Daley, will leave office in May.
No one knows who will be leading the Chicago Public Schools in a few months. The quite capable interim CEO, Terry Mazany, and chief education officer, Charles Payne, are on a short-term lease. The next mayor will choose the next CEO. No major candidate for mayor has identified who would get the job in his or her administration.
