Obama and Annenberg

Dan Riehl continues investigating Barack Obama's involvement with the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, a foundation-funded project to improve Chicago public schools that spent $50 million and yet "had little impact on student outcomes." The project appears to have been basically a full-employment program for left-wing academics.

UPDATE: Riehl also notes the problematic role of Chicago politician Emil Jones in Obama's career. Jones is typical Chicago machine pol.

Not long ago, I called Chicago "one of the most corrupt cities on the planet," and got an angry e-mail from a Chicago resident, insisting with civic pride that his city is THE most corrupt city on the planet. I'll let folks in New Orleans defend their own claim to World's Most Corrupt City.
