    If you go to the live source.. you can see that these spikes in crime all occur in July.. during summer vacation. I've heard the theories that say it's because it's hot.. but I'm wondering if it's just because folks are idle.

    I attended summer-school every single year from 7th-grade through 11th grade.. it kept me busy, gave me an advantage in school and if you add it up.. I got 10 months more education than the kids that did not go to summer school. I know it's a logistic challenge to run the schools all year round.. but why not? The kids that need the extra education the most are the same kids at risk for becoming involved with the violence in the streets. 3 more months of school would also equal more jobs.

    Of course the self-interested-Teacher's unions would probably have a fit though.

    But.. if, as Khasm13 says, education is the answer, the question then becomes:

    What role does the present organization of the education system in Chicago play in the ongoing violence on the streets of Chicago?

    just noticed also.. that violent crime is at it's lowest in February.. presumably because of either black history month (ha ha..) or the extreme cold.. leading me to the question: would a new ice-age solve Chicago's violence problem?

    We we have school on the weekends also?


    The present organization plays no role.

    It's not their job to keep a kid from picking up a gun.

    It's the kids parents.

    Or in too many cases..parent, or grandparent.

    Everyone always wants to blame someone else.

    My wife is a teacher in an "urban" area.

    8th grade math. My third grader knows her times tables better then most of my wife's students.

    You can sit in a classroom 24/7/365. If you don't put in any effort you don't get any results.

    Just as a reminder...the key factors with blacks in any city are:
    1) quality of schooling
    2)black unemployment rate
    3) corruptness/level of racism in the police department

    Looking at this from the standpoint of being smack dab un the middle of this ish...we cant even pay our teachers now because of illinois politricks and not having a budget for this year...the only state...so after we get past this hurdle i will be able to address ur question in a more thorough manner fam...

    One love

    The chicago public
    School system spends(I believe) in upwards of 20 million dollars a year giving kids a safe passage to and from school.
    With no major incidents on these routes since its inception.

    Don't forget to add the cooperation these racist please get from residents when trying to solve a crime.

    Generally around 0%

    And when quality of schooling is measured. What is the measuring stick. Test scores?

    What if teachers are teaching, but kids don't want to learn.
    Does that mean it's a bad school?

    And unemployment.

    High crime because of unemployment. Or unemployment because a bunch of criminals live there.

    yeah.. I have a few threads about that.. but this thread asks a specific set of questions.. if we make every thread into every thread then we lose the ability to focus.

    The question here is about the spike that happens every summer in Chicago.. and the possible correlation between the thousands of idle young men that flood the streets when school lets out.
