8 million dollars in over run cost is built into the 89 million. That was discussed at the meeting too. So, really it's 81 million. If it's under, it's under, but it won't go over. I disagree that the new schools won't last as long. Architects are committed to building quality structures, not like Ellington and Monroe which were designed to be temporary, both of which are almost…

By your own logic, would a positive effect on the teachers not have a positive effect on the students? It's all cause and effect and Newton's 3rd law. I could quote and reference many sources which could then be rebutted by your own, I'll leave the Googling up to you, I have better ways to spend my time. Something we all seem to agree on is that there is an issue and the current structure…

Perhaps UKWP is trying to equate military service with "on the teat" teaching jobs. Of course there are many big differences, especially for military that are deployed, which is part of the job. There are indeed many public school teachers that see their unionized, teaching monopoly, "part time" job as a public service that demands the same respect as our military. Not many retire with PTSD, or…

And you're making the opposite mistake....saying that each thing, when added together, becomes a total justification. That's not how you justify expenditures. You have to make the case for EACH item in it's own right. And you do that compared to what it would cost to fix it in place...assuming you do have to fix it...which apparently we don't...because it hasn't been done.…

Bizarre sequence of events in GOP gubernatorial campaign

From from suntimes.com:

In an announcement rocking the Republican gubernatorial primary race, Illinois Treasurer Dan Rutherford contended Friday that his opponent, millionaire businessman Bruce Rauner, paid an attorney who demanded $300,000 from him on behalf of a Rutherford employee making allegations against him.

Rutherford said at a news conference that the allegations are false but declined to describe them. They were made last week by a current employee in the treasurer’s office, Rutherford said.

Rutherford said he has launched an independent investigation into the allegations and accused Rauner of trying to destroy him.

“I’m going to turn this back on him,” Rutherford said. “I find this to be very, very offensive. ... Illinois politics is hardball.”

Rauner’s campaign denies having anything to do with the allegations against Rutherford.

“Treasurer Rutherford should spend his time answering the serious claims made against him by a state employee, rather than trying to distract attention with false claims against us,” Rauner spokesman Mike Schrimpf said.
