Want to tour Chicago public schools in mid-November? Sure you do. And now you can, thanks to the IASB. And if all goes well then maybe next there will be a tour bus or musical based on the school system. Click here (PDF)
I grew up near Roscoe & Halsted in the 1970s, left for college and moved back in 2000, started this blog in 2005 (first on my own, then with Catalyst, and now with ChicagoNow). My dad went to Senn. I went to Near North Montessori and Parker. Since 2006 I've been living in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn -- the Wicker Park of New York City. I have another education blog called This Week In Education that focuses on school reform trends at the national level.
