On July 25, 1015, Bruno Behrend, Senior Fellow for Education Policy at the Heartland Institute, and Troy LaRaviere, Principal of Blaine Elementary School, offered their perspectives on “Public or private? What should be the future of public education in Chicago?” Behrend’s argument was clear: Large urban districts, the teachers unions, and the public school system itself, are willing to protect themselves with lobbying in Springfield and Washington, DC at the expense of the children. LaRaviere started explaining the difference between scientific data and the use of averages and overall data. He then espoused the virtues of Chicago Public Schools (CPS), quoting statistics and claiming CPS was outperforming charter schools in Chicago.
