CHICAGOLAND:
Teachers union prez makes fun of Secy of Ed. Arne Duncan’s
lisp…

So true I know Karen very well and she speaks the truth can’t help it.  Here’s a good bio for her from Chicago Trib: http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2011-09-11/news/ct-met-karen-lewis-teachers-union-0911-20110911_1_union-president-karen-lewis-mayor-emanuel-substitute-teacher.

She is not backing down from Rahm Emanuel either.  Her remarks did come off as a joke and she apologized because she mentioned his lisp.  It happens.  We have talked about Arne many times and wondered of course how he got that job in the first place back when he was hired.  His credentials speak for themselves.  He is not an educator period.  My son had a lisp and the public schools fixed it.  I don’t really see a reason for apology just pro forma.  You go girl.

he had gone to public school, he would have had that lisp fixed’…
