Mayor Daley?s sweeping plan to build two dozen new schools across the city will cost taxpayers $1 billion. While the mayor says the city?s children can?t wait for new, more modern schools, his plan drew swift criticism from one watchdog group that said the district needs to be more open about its capital planning process. Guests: Erin Lavin Cabonargi, managing architect, CPS Department of Operations; and Jacqueline Leavy, executive director of the Neighborhood Capital Budget Group.
