Today the Chicago Board of Education Closed 49 schools
On May 22, 2013, the Chicago Board of Education voted to close 49 schools. This has not been an easy process, but now we must look forward and work to ensure the transition is a safe and smooth one.
Quality Schools Now!
There are 123,000 kids in under-performing schools in Chicago. Couple that with the fact that there are empty seats and buildings across the district not allowing for a fully resourced school that includes art, music, world-languages, and we have a serious problem.
Building Quality Chicago Schools
For too long, we have allowed the status quo of our schools to affect the academic achievement of our students. We can and must change that.
We're Standing Near You
We are expanding our work around the state and would like to work with you to build better public schools.
