When it comes to CPS budgets and issues, few people are more knowledgeable than George Schmidt, who’s been involved in teaching and reporting on the schools for decades. A blogger and reporter for Substance News, he appears on this week’s show to dish some dirt about the most recent schools budget and offer his perspective on Mayor Emanuel, J.C Brizard and a wide range of issues.

Joining him on the panel is Elias Cepeda, Managing Editor of Extra Newspaper. Elias has been covering schools, too, but he also brings his perspective on the police, and the Mayor’s effort to cut $190 million from their budget.
