The Chicago Annenberg Challenge under Obama and Ayers: Ideology trumped education

NRO's Stanley Kurtz is doing the meticulous poring-over of Chicago Annenberg Challenge records that the mainstream media has thus far refused to do. Here's a taste from his latest article:
It looks like Jeremiah Wright was just the tip of the iceberg. Not only did Barack Obama savor Wright’s sermons, Obama gave legitimacy — and a whole lot of money — to education programs built around the same extremist anti-American ideology preached by Reverend Wright. And guess what? Bill Ayers is still palling around with the same bitterly anti-American Afrocentric ideologues that he and Obama were promoting a decade ago. All this is revealed by a bit of digging, combined with a careful study of documents from the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, the education foundation Obama and Ayers jointly led in the late 1990s.
