  2. In Bureau County, 2012, less than 1% of the population was African American. Were you to understand the crisis in African American life,in urban areas particularly, where neighborhood schools have closed and been privatized, African American middle class jobs related to public education have been eliminated, homelessness has spiked due to "urban renewal", you might not be so certain of the sentiment expressed in this photo. Corporate education reform is marketed as "the new civil rights movement" and this photo is a good example of that.
