Preckwinkle said Friday she plans to keep Jackson for two reasons: CPS needs stability after a revolving door of five CEOs in the past eight years and Mayor Rahm Emanuel got it right with his fifth try.

She also cracked the door open for Johnson to save his $260,004-a-year job just as the police department released crime figures for February that showed homicides and shootings continuing to decline.
