CHICAGO–Chicago Teachers Union President Karen Lewis reacted to the recent announcement that investment banker Deborah Quazzo has been tapped for a seat on the Board of Education by Mayor Rahm Emanuel:

"We are unsurprised at the tone deafness of the mayor who clearly has an agenda when he appoints to the Board of Education yet another charter school proponent and Bruce Rauner campaign contributor. We are surprised he didn't appoint Juan Rangel," Lewis said. “Once again, this is a missed opportunity to include a compassionate voice that will fight for an equitable, thriving school district for all students.”
