A Glass of Red Wine a Day for the Global Economy
"We are extremely grateful to The Eli and Edythe Broad Foundation for their confidence and support for Chicago's efforts to become a national leader in empowering our staff and our children in the primary grades with the tools and information to make our entire district as efficient and effective in preparing students for their place in the Global Economy," said CEO Arne Duncan.
Asked if the rumor that a pint a day will raise test scores, District spokesmen refused comment, insisting that preliminary data have not yet been evaluated.
"The district's initiative will create an environment that encourages everyone in the school district - principals, teachers, administrators and parents and children - to improve student performance as future productive citizens in the Global Economy," said Marilyn Stewart, President of the Chicago Teachers Union (AFT). "It is clear that the forward-looking school will follow the science and use red wine to drive decision-making and improve instruction and test achievement, and all that."
