theodp writes “In a private lunch with Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley, BusinessWeek’s Michael Arndt was taken aback by the mayor’s candid monologues against the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and the failure of public schools — Chicago’s included — to adequately train kids today in technology, math, and science. Among the education fixes Daley said he’s contemplating are a fifth year of high school and elite math and science academies for Chicago’s brainiest students. Endless wars that divert hundreds of billions a year from schools and job training are also undermining America’s competitiveness, Daley added, wondering where the public outrage is.”
