In Logan Square today, budget cuts to Chicago Public Schools sparked calls for Mayor Emanuel to change his priorities when it comes to funding.
Logan Square community groups, along with local school councils, parents, teachers and supporters, criticized the mayor’s refusal to use surplus tax increment financing, or TIF funds for the schools.
They charge the mayor is using the surplus funds for corporate welfare and to subsidize DePaul University’s new McCormick Place Facility.
Mayor Emanuel insists TIF financing won’t end school budget problems.
He looks to pension reform legislation in Springfield as the answer.
