I hope Jean-Claude Brizard will create a cultural movement that will encourage low income parents and students to value education. Mr. Brizard and Mayor Emanuel should enroll urban cultural icons, music radio stations, Chicago advertising agencies , and community activist to implement some desperately needed social engineering.
Q&A with Jean-Claude Brizard
BRIZARD: Not every school can be turned around.
CATALYST: Why not, if you’re bringing in a new principal and new teachers?
BRIZARD: There are times you have an environment that is so bad, it would take years to turn around.
