Chicago’s economy needs continuous school reform

The importance of this endeavor to our city cannot be underestimated. The very economy of our city relies on the quality of our schools. Businesses must consider local schools when determining a strategic location for a home office. Further, local workforces and universities draw from the graduates produced by our high schools. When we don’t provide the highest quality education, the quality of local businesses and colleges suffers. If Chicago is to be a model metropolis for the world as Mayor Richard Daley envisions, we simply must transform this school system.
