    Chicago's Mayor Richard Daley's education program falls flat, report says.

    Mayor Daley today named a new School Board President.

    Mary Richardson-Lowry will fill the seat left vacant when Michael Scott killed himself this fall.

    Daley called the appointment bittersweet because Scott was a close friend of his, according to the Chicago Tribune.

    Richardson-Lowry previously served as Daley’s building commissioner. She’s currently a lawyer with the firm Mayer Brown.
