I've heard from a couple of people now that one of my favorite Chicago education reporters, Lori Olszewski (undated picture at left), has left the Tribune and is now working on education issues at the Center on Urban School Improvement at the U of C (otherwise known as Tim Knowles' secret lair). A South Side native, Olszewski is a former Nieman Fellow, knew education better than most, and did some great work on deseg among other things while she was at the Tribune. Click here to see a list of her clips. Hopefully, she'll help keep those CUSI folks real.
