Asean Johnson is back and he’s voicing his displeasure to the Chicago Board of Education.
“One thing I don’t get about this board is that you only give us two minutes to speak and you give these corporate businesses, what, an hour to speak?”
“You are slashing our education. You are pulling me down. You are taking our education and our potential away. Let the community talk. Let the students talk. Let the parents talk. Let the teachers talk. Let them control this board. Don’t let the bank control this board … You are saying this is all about the kids. I’m a student myself and I’m pleading and begging that you help these parents and their low income. Help them out. Give them what the need. Give them these schools.”
