Chicago public schools began classes this month after securing much-needed money from the state. But the funding bill came with a provision that critics say could imperil public education in the state and serve as a frightening precedent for the rest of the country.  This "poison pill," as teachers unions call it, allows individuals and corporations to donate to private schools in lieu of paying taxes.

"The ultimate Big Bang of this project is that they want to change our Constitution," Maclean says. "They are actually building towards a constitutional convention.
