Howdy peeps! I am always amazed and impressed (neither suggesting in a good way or bad, just being objective) at how fast some news can travel in such a short period of time at our college.
Just when I thought all was good, along comes this investigative report titled Hard to See City College’s True Colors from Carol Marin and company over at NBC Chicago. Take a looksee and talk amongst yourselves.
From the printed version of the report:
As a part of Reinvention, the Central Office mandated that all schools change their colors. In some cases it was a very minor change. Malcolm X for instance went from one shade of red to another shade of red. (See the adjacent chart to compare) The total cost—plus a new slogan: $50,000. Or about the same as three adjunct professors at the current rate.
I was not able to embed the video so you’ll have to click on the link. There’s a bonus video clip titled ‘Emanuel Lauds City Colleges’ if you go to the main story. Spin city at work so soon? I dunno.
