The days pass by and we get closer to the inauguration of Mayor-elect Brandon Johnson, Chicago’s first teacher to become mayor! As his transition announcements continue, we want to ensure Chicago parents and community members have a voice, too.
I urge you to add your name to our virtual welcome card and tell Mayor-elect Johnson your education priorities. We plan to deliver the card to him soon after he takes office, so your feedback will make it to the Fifth Floor of City Hall.
As a parent of a current CPS student, I understand many of the issues facing the city and CPS. Many challenges lay ahead, along with a number of great opportunities. I want to see more equitable investment in our schools and to ensure that each child has access to high-quality literacy instruction. What issues do you want to see addressed by our new mayor?
Mayor-elect Johnson’s quest to unify the City continues. Let’s all work together to support our City, our families, our schools, and our future!
