Only a few hours before appearing on our show, The Better Government Association’s  Andy Shaw had moderated a mayoral forum on education issues.  He re-capped some of the forum’s highlights, including the debate over James Meeks’ proposal to give 50,000 Chicago Public School kids a $4,500 voucher to attend schools outside the system.

Panelists Kitty Kurth, well-known political consultant and activist, and WBEZ’s Natalie Moore joined Shaw for some very spirited discussion about food deserts, Wal-Mart, cutting the City Council by half, and Toni Preckwinkle’s proposal to slash spending for public defenders, prosecutors and the Sheriff’s office.
