Well, here is another reason:
Chicago public school bureaucrats skirted competitive bidding rules to buy
30 cappuccino/espresso machines for $67,000, with most of the machines going
unused because the schools they were ordered for had not asked for them,
according to a report by the CPS Office of Inspector General.
I think I figured this out and I don't get paid to even think about it. Stop buying crap, stop paying for unecessary redundant staff and start teaching kids again.
