Please take a moment of your day to read this incredibly chilling letter from Troy LaRaviere – one of Chicago’s strongest principals and now President of the CPAA. He has been fighting tooth and nail against Rahm’s crooked and destructive actions regarding education in Chicago, and is facing a very dark side of Rahm’s administration that has shown that they will stop at nothing to achieve retribution.
