MSNBC’s “Ed” turns up the heat on Noble Street.

“I don’t like what’s happening in Chicago.”

Yesterday’s “Ed Show” featured our Tribune Op Ed on Noble charter’s discipline policy, along with parent Donna Moore, and Advancement Project Co-Director Judith Brown Dianis on “The Big Finish”.

On his show last week, Ed brought in Karen Lewis to talk about the Board of Education’s decision to close and turnaround a bunch more schools. Ed concluded, “This is all about the money. And this is all about the wealthy and the charter schools. I`m not going to let this story go.”

So, this week he followed up with The Noble story: “Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is praising his city’s charter schools, but one school’s policy of fining students for offenses like slouching or chewing gum has people asking questions.”

The show’s caption was: Public Education Disaster.”

I’m guessing that Noble won’t add that to the press page on its web site.
