SOT: ERICA CLARK, CPS Parent "It's deeply disappointing that there's not one person in this building-one person-who could come down and talk to a group of parents and students. This is what it's about (reaching out to little girl)--it's about the students. They say they put children first, but they cannot take five minutes to come down and talk to us?""What if we had a smaller delegation go up? Just a few of us go up? You won't let one person up there to deliver a message to the Board of Ed? (Guards voices: "We'll take your postcards. We'll take them up there").
