Stacy Davis-Gates is undoubtedly Illinois’ most prominent and rabid opponent of school choice — and pretty much everybody and everything associated with it, all of which she labels racist or worse. As president of the Chicago Teachers Union, she is at the forefront of its campaign to kill Illinois’ meager Invest in Kids Act, which currently gives about 9,000 disadvantaged kids scholarships to attend private schools. “It must be ‘game over'” for the program, the CTU says. But, as initially reported** by SubX News, she sends one of her kids to to Chicago’s De La Salle Institute, a private, Catholic high school.
Consider that in light of some of what she has said against providing needy parents with the means to attend a private school like De La Salle through school choice programs [emphasis is added]:
“I’m also a mother, my children go to the Chicago public school,” she said in a webinar. “These are things that help to legitimize my space within the coalition but also helps to amplify my voice as a leader in labor because a white dude whose kids go to school in the suburbs can’t really have that same voice in the same way.”
When asked in an interview if she had concerns about school-choice and privatization supporters running for the school board, she said, “Yes, we are concerned about the encroachment of fascists in Chicago. We are concerned about the marginalization of public education through the eyes of those who’ve never intended for Black people to be educated. So we’re going to fight tooth and nail to make sure that type of fascism and racism does not exist on our Board of Education.”
“I can’t advocate on behalf of public education and the children of this city and educators in this city without it taking root in my own household,” she told Chicago Magazine.
On Twitter, she has said things like “School choice was actually the choice of racists. It was created to avoid integrating schools with Black children.” Private schools are “Segregation Academies,” she wrote on Twitter. “Call them private schools supported by taxpayer funds – vouchers – so your northern cousins understand better,” she said. And she linked to an article titled “The Racist Origins of Private School Vouchers.”
De La Salle, where Davis-Gates sends one of her three kids, has long been a diamond in the rough of Southside high schools. But with tuition at $14,750 per year, it’s open only to those with some means, like Davis-Gates, and the few who are fortunate enough to get financial help. ***
Some breath holes should be permanently covered.
Black women…….real dangers to our way of life
Why am I not surprised?
Her hate list is far broader than “private schools”.
Of course she does. /s
Reminds me of a more serious matter a few years ago. The loudmouth and ugly PLO spokeswoman loudly encouraged crowds to volunteer their children to be the ones who have explosives strapped to their torsos and then went into Israelis stores and restaurants to blow themselves up in suicide bombings. Police watching for terrorists in their twenties wouldn’t be wary of children.
After several rabblerousing speeches she was taken aside and informed that her own daughter had volunteered for the bombing. The woman shrieked repeatedly and fell onto the ground.
What? Me send my kids to those shoddy, dangerous public schools. What are you, crazy? No way.
Her actions speak so much louder than her race-hustling BS rhetoric. In fact, her actions say literally everything you need to know about this issue.
Squealer was sent to make the necessary explanations to the others.
"Comrades!" he cried. "You do not imagine, I hope, that we pigs are doing this in a spirit of selfishness and privilege? Many of us actually dislike milk and apples. I dislike them myself. Our sole object in taking these things is to preserve our health. Milk and apples (this has been proved by Science, comrades) contain substances absolutely necessary to the well-being of a pig. We pigs are brainworkers.
Black women…….real dangers to our way of life
add arrogant and big mouthed. They will never be challenged
>We are concerned about the marginalization of public education through the eyes of those who’ve never intended for Black people to be educated.
I watched blacks take over a very effective suburban school system and run it into the ground over the course of about three decades with a combination of raw incompetence and outright criminality (as in several key players sent to prison). Black children were definitely getting a better education when whites ran the show, that’s just the plain facts.
Yes. Prominent black women have risen to positions of power and influence across the nation. All of them have proved to be incompetent, greedy, corrupt, self serving, big mouths. Every one of them.
Of course! She is not going to send her child to some sh*tty Chicago public school! That's for all the plebes.
When are people going to have had a bellyful of this crap and shut it down?
De La Salle is a very expensive, elite high school with high standards. Aren’t her children lucky?
These people are evil but not stupid how can anyone send their child to major city public school?
Didn’t NEED the pic-—but thanks, anyway.
Arrogant Uppity & WRONG
Is anyone surprised? this has to be done for every union head in major school districts.
