Have the Chicago Teachers Union offer their plan to improve low performing neighborhood schools?
Mayor-elect Rahm Emanuel’s wants to ensure that every child in Chicago has access to a world-class learning experience. Mayor-elect Emanuel also wants more parental involvement. Now that’s the main challenge facing Chicago’s low performing schools.
I don’t know what goes on in other communities but in the African American community it is obvious we need more prenatal involvement.
It would be great if the Chicago Teachers Union president Karen Lewis and Mayor-elect Rahm Emanuel aggressively encourage more African American parents to get involve in their children’s education.
