capitol for chinese education?

Found this article:
Robert A. Davis Jr. leaned back in his chair in the big room that is the Confucius Institute in Chicago and laughed. "I think we are proving that if I can learn Chinese anyone can."

Davis, a tall, affable educator, is director of the Confucius Institute located in downtown of Chicago. He also is the manager of World Language & International Studies, the Office of Language & Cultural Education, for Chicago Public Schools.

With a population of about 3 million, Chicago is the third largest city in the United States, with some 250,000 students in its public schools. But with more than 12,000 of those students in 43 schools, Davis, Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley, and educators in Chicago and China, have created the largest program in America for teaching Chinese.

Mmm... forbidden donut...
