I called in on Mayor Emanuel's Town Hall Conference Call.
I asked Mayor Emanuel would he consider having the Chicago Public Schools place a heavier focus on the first five weeks of every marking period. A heavier focus on student attendance, student classroom behavior, and students completing their homework assignments.
Mayor Emanuel suggested I read this article; Chicago School Uses Data to Fight Problems - WSJ.com (Click The First Five Weeks above the Mayor's photo)
I hope Mayor Emanuel will use data collection and analysis to improve classroom behavior, and students completing their homework assignments.
