Board Meeting Wednesday
Here ya go….
Big CPS board meeting Wednesday Nov 17.
They will be voting on the recos of the Blue Ribbon Committee in regards to policy on admission criteria for selective enrollment and magnet schools.
I endorse going to the meeting to voice your opinion (although I believe the goal was for the BRC to collect this input before this meeting and incorporate it into their reco.) If you disagree with their recommendations, it’s certainly worth expressing that opinion at Wednesday”s meeting.
I read the entire BRC recommendation document this weekend and my personal opinion is that they did a very thorough job (especially considering they all have other full time jobs.) I find most of recommendations to be well-discussed. I feel like the points they made reflect that the group wasn’t biased toward one specific group and I generally agree with their report and the recommendations they’re making. If you don’t, by all means speak up on behalf of yourself.
You can read their report here (first document BRC Report 9_22_10.)
As a disclaimer, I’m not necessarily here to be a CPS activist. I’m happy to provide links to sites that support CPS-related activism (such as Raise Your Hand,) so if anyone wants to start one, please feel free to give me your link and I’ll post it. But my goal is to provide a forum about the CPS experience. All aspects of it. Thanks for reading and especially for all the discussion.
