CPS releases maps of 'safe passage' routes
Chicago Tribune ^ | 8/9/13 | Noreen Ahmed-Ullah Tribune reporter

Posted on 08/09/2013 9:18:25 AM PDT by Nachum

Chicago Public Schools officials today released maps of routes where security will be provided for the thousands of children going to news schools this year.

The so-called "safe passage" routes are designed to smoothly shift students from 47 schools being closed this year to nearby schools. (Click HERE to see maps.)

Parents have voiced concern about children crossing rival gang territories and passing empty buildings and vacant lots. Some of them have complained that CPS has been late releasing the maps.

Training for safe passage workers, originally targeted by CPS for this week, is now set to begin next Thursday.

The safe passage program was started by CPS after the beating death of Fenger High School student Derrion Albert in 2009, and until now has been used mostly for high schools. Last school year, it was added in four communities where elementary schools closed.

These hires should be called “Navigators” instead of the IRS lackeys trying to figure out ObamaCare for the masses.

And they should be armed.

I heard they wanted to do walking school buses, in which the kids all walk in a group.

Chicago needs to fenced in and cut off from our tax dollars. Mostly animals live in Chicago, and the few remaining people are incompetent liberals.

Only eight people shot in Chicago last night.

I sure wouldn’t want MY kid crossing into rival gang territory. I’d only want him on his OWN gang’s turf. Gotta love the ‘concerned’ parents.

day10 ~~:" How unbelievably sad that life has come to this in that area. Where are Jesse, Al, and Barry on this?"

They are busy feathering their own nests of power and money , and self-importance .
They can't be bothered by black on black crime ; instead they want to work on the Trayvon™ "packaged"
story being still pumped , and pimped by the media .

It sorta reminds me of the expression : 'Which way did they go? I have to find them ! I am their leader !! '

I emailed Mayor Rhambo that he should deputize the Million Moms Against Gun Violence and send them in to clean up the illegal weapons.

So far, no response....

FYI, “chimpmania” is a virulent racist site, I suspect linking to any content there is frowned upon by the management of FR.

I think that the City of Chicago School System should invest in some Israeli armored buses.

Could we at least keep access to Greektown? The world needs access to good Saganaki.

HA! And instead of fruit, one of the prizes searched for is a .357. OR 12-gauge.

Dis game's got potential, yo! The setting of the game can remain Chitown...OR...South-Central, Detroit, Camden...etc.

Doesn’t this sound something like the convoy system in WWII to protect the merchant fleet from U-boat wolfpacks?

What in the world have we come to in this country where children have to be protected on their way to school?
