Hypocrite of the Week: Head of Chicago Teachers Union Sends Her Son to Private School

“I can’t advocate on behalf of public education without it taking root in my own household” Stacy Davis-Gates, president of the Chicago Teachers Union and national vice president of Randi Weingarten’s American Federation of Teachers.

Actually, she can and does.

Wirepoints reports: Davis-Gates sends one of her three kids to De LaSalle, a prominent private school on the south side of Chicago. “But with tuition at $14,750 per year,” Wirepoints notes: “it’s open only to those with some means, like Davis-Gates, and the few who are fortunate enough to get financial help.”

At her day job, Davis-Gates is paid a cool $150,000 a year and was a leader in the successful effort to defund Illinois’s meager Invest in Kids Act, which gave some 9,000 disadvantaged kids scholarships to attend private schools.

How does she live with herself?
