Vallas, Bankers, Haiti...oh, and Education, Too

From the Chicago Sun Times (h/t to Mike Klonksy):
[Sun Times correspondent Michael] Sneed is told that former Chicago Public Schools CEO Paul Vallas, who once eyed a mayoral bid, is developing a model to build a school system in Haiti for an international American bank.
I think it's pretty fair to cringe at the thought of bankers paying Paul Vallas to "build a school system".
