Ever-Cheerful - A Tribute

Ever-cheerful and optimistic An island of sanity midst pandemic's panic A voice of reason in a sea of shouts Dr. Janice Jackson, public schools CEO Giving Chicago a leader to crow about 24/7 she's striven to better Chicago's schools dealing with intransigence, high-handedness an angry army of Teacher's Union hacks and fools She's leaving next month Can't say I blame her May Dr. Jackson, God forever bless

You're right, Lindsay. The arrogant teachers will be clucking that they got rid of 'the oppressor,' or some such blither... And so it goes... :) gw

Hard job, eloquently expressed Gershon. A wonderful tribute to a teacher-administrator always caught between a rock and a hard place! Blessings to you.

You've got that right, Sam. A big rock and a hard grinder of a place.
