There's nothing specific about Andersen being phased out or Pritzker getting a
new PreK program when you search for Wicker Park or Ukrainian Village
on a new site called EveryBlock Chicago-- mostly just police blotter stuff, restaurant inspections, missed
connections (ie, hipsters who glanced up from their iPhones on the Blue
Line). In an ideal world, that news would be there, along with a schedule of LSC meetings and the hearings that CPS is planning.
But there are some local news items, and this sort of hyper-local
approach to websites is just what I'm going to aim to do here in the
not too distant future: providing information and a forum for parents
and teachers to talk about individual schools. Until then, go to the
site and plug in your block and see what's going on. Thanks to MM for
hooking me up to this.
