• Jean-Claude Brizard

In the aftermath of the strike-authorization vote by Chicago’s public school teachers, CEO Jean-Claude Brizard underwent a miraculous transformation: he turned into me.

He’s calling off the longer school day until they find some money to do anything significant with the extra time.

Yeah, right—I wish. More like, Brizard’s telling the teachers he feels their pain, having spent the last year or so creating it by applying a collective choke hold to the rank and file.
