Tim Meegan, candidate for alderman in Chicago’s 33rd Ward, joins us for a couple to discuss his vision for the ward he resides in. With his 10 years of teaching at Roosevelt high school under his belt, as well as his experience as a father of two boys, his commitment to the ward where he has lived with his family fuels his desire to make it safe and accessible for people of all types. He also dives into the status of public education in Chicago and outlines many of the main challenges facing our public education system. We love it when informed, working-class people like Tim run for office. We especially love it when they’ll come onto the show and speak openly about what drives them to do so.

We also recently interviewed Anne Carlson and Juan Gonzalez, two Chicago Public School teachers from Drummond Montessori about the recent parent/teacher campaign to Opt Out of the ISAT.
