Sadly, I'm not surprised. None of us probably are (or should be).
A large data file contains evidence that suggests cheating on state exams at 89 Pennsylvania schools.

I would think from a legal perspective (NYS law) it would be difficult to keep a charter school open that openly violates established law and procedures. Like a school can institute corporal punishment, and it may work, but I think the school still might get shut down.
I wouldn't go as far to say most schools are cheating, because I don't know, but I will say this - the charter school argument rests solely upon the premise that it is a better taxpayer investment than public schools. Not simply a better monetary investment, but management and teaching by private interests are far superior than public workers. I don't even know if this is cheating - it's literally choosing a team of ringers. It's like playing dodgeball against a team of MLB all-star pitchers. They are taking the kids who would succeed in public schools anyway, putting them in charter schools and saying, hey, look, we did a great job. It's more than cheating, because charter schools need not exist for people be educators or keep their jobs. The very existence of the charter school model, which is and should be very much in debate, is what they are attempting to preserve that further serves to undemine public institutions.

Nice hotel with nice amenities in a very convenient location. I wish we had a better view of the city from our room, and I thought the suite would be bigger with a few more features (microwave, fridge... I think I was thinking Embassy Suites), but overall a nice place.

Great space, full of history of improv/comedy/theater greats. Saw the 101st revue "Let Them Eat Chaos" with a packed house for the 11 o'clock show. It was an excellent, excellent show. This cast is phenomenal. Not a dull or awkward moment. I love the level of humor and comedic timing, as well as the inclusion of social commentary in a smart and natural way. This was the highlight of my visit to Chicago by far.

Went during the Blackhawks parade, which was right outside. The crowd didn't deter us and the inside was big enough to accommodate folks coming in after the parade too. Great service - very fast and attentive. Food was GREAT - they're known for pancakes so...do that. With berries. Mmm.

Oh man. So good. I thought a 2 hour wait would be something to hold against them, but it is so worth it. Camp out on the deck and drink wine and cocktails if you have to. Just get in there and eat. Had the beef, pork shoulder, turkey leg, chicken skewers... all well seasoned and full of flavor. The broccoli, asparagus, and fried potatoes were delicious all by themselves. I'm a dessert person and I couldn't even fit it in - all the more reason to go back.

Went for the Ebony Fashion Fair Exhibit. Excellent overview of the history and representation of the fashion. I wish it were bigger! We arrived about 20 minutes before closing, but the staff let us come in and didn't charge us entry because of our limited time. Beautiful facility and I hope to visit again.
