New LSC members will find training close to home

To help develop a curriculum and assist in organizing the new effort, College of Education Dean Larry Braskamp pulled together a coalition of individuals from local universities, the school administration, the Chicago Teachers Union and community-based and reform organizations.

The coalition’s first task was to train the 715 LSC members who had been appointed to fill vacancies that had arisen since the training requirement was enacted. As it turned out, only about 400 participated.
