* Huberman to leave as CPS boss before May

All this threatens to occur over a critical set of months, when CPS traditionally devises its budget, prepares for state tests and decides which schools to close. It must tackle the tasks with an administrative staff decimated by budget cuts, teachers left disgruntled by cost-saving layoffs and the specter of even worse budget woes next school year.

* Chicago Public Schools CEO Ron Huberman Not Leaving Post Soon

He said he would likely stay through January, when a new school year begins for some CPS students. He said any time there is a transition in leadership, there is some consideration of who else will leave, but speculation he will leave soon is untrue.

    That area north of the United Center doesn’t even strike me as being the most dangerous neighborhood on the West Side, much less in the country. I ride the Lake Street El all the time. They tore down the CHA highrises years ago and replaced them with low-density townhomes.

    I’d take my chances around there before West Garfield Park, Lawndale, Englewood, Pullman, Logan Square, Rogers Park, etc.

    IIRC, wasn’t this the same “real estate advising company” that last year classified 11th and Cook Streets in Springfield as one of the 25 most dangerous neighborhoods (it’s not on this year’s list)? Granted, that is a place you would not want to be after dark, but really….

    I don’t know if you’ve seen this elsewhere, but I just saw in the St Louis PD that Quinn is suggesting that gay unions could become law by the end of the year. Is that a commitment by him to call in a veto session and get the legislature to do this? Is this an empty promise for the gay movement?

    Looks like Kane County better revisit their pay scale for prosecutors. Not like they don’t have any crime issues out there. BTW, there’s more than 5 that have left for greener pastures.
