Illinois State Representative Esther Golar (D-6th) member of the Chicago Facilities Task Force (CEFTF) warned Chicago Public Schools that the "Fight is On!" Rebuking Hearing officer Fred Bates during the public hearing held on a Friday night 7:30pm February 3, 2012 at Chicago Board of Education headquarters in downtown, regarding the plan to turnaround Tilden High School on Chicago's Southside. Turnaround is the policy that fires all the staff in a school including the lunch ladies and security guards because of low test scores. The staff is then hired by a private management contractor in this case it would be Academy for Urban School Leadership (AUSL) a clout heavy crony contractor with direct ties to Rahm Emanuel and sitting members on the Board of Education. Turnaround policy has also been cited as one of the factors that lead to the murder of Derrion Albert on September 24, 2009 from Fenger High School a turnaround school.
