There's an article I wrote in the February edition of Chicago magazine (which some people are already getting) about how CPS compares to other big city schools systems (NY, LA, Philadelphia, Houston).
It's not online yet, You can see it by clicking below, but there's nothing earth-shattering in there, but it might be in your mailbox or at the Walgreen's. Check it out. My Q&A with Virginia Madsen also made the cover.
