Battling boycott plans

Chicago Public Schools chief Arne Duncan speaks at New Bethlehem Missionary Baptist Church in August 2008, where he urged parents and children not to participate in a citywide boycott on the first day of school. A group of pastors, led by state Sen. James Meeks, planned the boycott to protest inequities in school funding. Tribune photo by Cheryl A. Guerrero
