Chicago Schools' Success

In a recent article, by Education Reporter for USNews.com Lauren Camera, Chicago Public Schools' new CEO, Chicago Native, CPS Alum, and former CPS Educator, Janice Jackson, discusses the marked progress and the future that she sees for the district.

Jackson credits this to, among other things, parent involvement, meticulous data collection, and analysis by a third party partnership with the University of Chicago.
