  1. Comment from Stephanie:

    Thanks for following this Steve. I saw this on the PPS website last night and was planning to do some fact finding. From a disability standpoint Chicago schools were less than spectacular but don’t know how much Botana had to do with that sans research. Keep me posted if you find anything and I will too.

    Chicago parent advocacy group PURE (Parents United for Responsible Education) published some kind words for Botana (thanks to PPS Parent Union founder Sheila Warren for the tip).
