In this post, Anthony Cody interviews Jesus (Chuy) Garcia, who is a candidate for mayor of Chicago.


Garcia addresses school closings, the need for an elected board of education, school closings, high-stakes testing, funding, and other questions that Cody asks.


From his answers, it appears that he is a good fit for the agenda of the Network for Public Education. He understands the needs of children, of schools, and of the connection between communities and schools.
