High school initiatitive – more info

November 13, 2009 at 2:58 pm Leave a comment

For those of us who are conspiracy theorists, here’s some good news about this group.  Keep in mind that it isn’t really a “group” unless people actually join up, go to meetings, and do actual stuff (rather than just hoping that a few parents fight to get us some better high school options.)  The most success will come if more people join in the cause.  In the end, we’ll be at the mercy of CPS and someone could bust their ass on this high school initiative only to find out that it will serve a certain OTHER part of the city or their own child won’t test in.  This is why I’m still in favor of principal discretion.  I mean come on, can’t a parent earn their kid a spot in a school in special circumstances?

Response:

I believe we are hoping to make an impact all over; however, we need many volunteers willing to take on various roles.  This is a very daunting task but we are hoping to motivate large numbers of people to become active in showing strong community wide support for high school improvement.  We have defined ourselves under the umbrella of these wards simply because it is where we live.  In order to expand this dialogue, we are willing to share our mission and knowledge as people are willing to volunteer to become active in their own neighborhoods.  At this point, we are thrilled that so many people are interested in addressing the issue.
