There wasn't time for most reporters to check out the claims being made by Huberman about his much-changed school safety program -- the mentoring, the culture of calm pilot schools, etc. Behavior
issues drop at six Chicago Public Schools: Six
high schools blazed the trail by developing the first "culture of
calm'' plans and receiving "culture of calm coordinators'' -- Farragut,
Robeson, Harlan, Julian, Clemente and Manley.. Huberman's Update on Anti-Violence Efforts: Today,
200 extremely at-risk students are being mentored intensively.
But most of the plan is not up and running yet.. Progress report on youth violence prevention
presentation raised as many questions as it answered... Hint
of good news, but mainly the blues at Wednesday school board meeting: Although
he made no promises for full-day programs, he told the crowd that if
CPS receives the same funding from the state next year, kindergarten
programs will be some of the first to be restored... Huberman claims progress in creating "culture of calm" in
fewer CPS students have been shot and 10 fewer killed this school year,
according to Chicago Public Schools officials. What do you think and what have you seen?
