The First Five Weeks




I called in on Mayor Emanuel's Town Hall Conference Call.

I asked Mayor Emanuel would he consider having the Chicago Public Schools place a heavier focus on the first five weeks of every marking period. A heavier focus on student attendance, student classroom behavior, and students completing their homework assignments.

Mayor Emanuel suggested I read this article; Chicago School Uses Data to Fight Problems - WSJ.com (Click The First Five Weeks above the Mayor's photo)


I hope Mayor Emanuel will use data collection and analysis to improve classroom behavior, and students completing their homework assignments.

Better Parents Better Schools



Jean-Claude Brizard
Chief Executive Officer
Chicago Public Schools
125 S. Clark Street, 5th Floor
Chicago, IL 60603


Mr. Brizard:

Can public service announcements encourage parents to be better parents and their children to become better students?

Can public service announcements help end the crime and violence that plagues too many Chicago neighborhoods?

Can you persuade music radio stations to air public service announcements that will encourage all Chicago residents to support their neighborhood school?

Chicago residents can support their neighborhood school with their time or they can donate money!

Thank you.

Jesus Christ & President Obama




Jesus Christ or President Obama are not going save working class African Americans.

Nor should they!


“God and Nature first made us what we are, and then out of our own created genius we make ourselves what we want to be. Follow always that great law. Let the sky and God be our limit and Eternity our measurement.”

Marcus Garvey
