    I applaud those who are offering help w/ CPS school admissions, but I must say that I think it is sad that we have gotten to the point where we need education consultants & “GPS” to navigate CPS school options and our kids “need” test prep to score well on the SEHS admissions exam & on their ISATS. Not the way it should be.

    Hi All, I assume with Lane’s academic center, this now means fewer slots for the high school. Does anyone have a sense of the numbers?

What do you think?
