New Schools for Chicago 2015

New Schools for Chicago was born out of the belief that a child’s zip code should not determine the quality of education they receive. Since the charter movement started nearly two decades ago, great strides have been made to expand quality school options in Chicago. Alongside students, families, educators and advocates, we have worked hard to transform the lives of thousands of students in our communities most in need.

A strong foundation has been built, but there is more work to be done.

We begin 2015 with renewed energy and are eager to build upon the momentum that we’ve gained. Looking ahead, New Schools for Chicago will focus on two areas: ensuring charter school quality and fostering an environment that allows them to thrive. We look forward to collaborating closely with our partners and fellow advocates, singularly focused on a brighter future for our students and our city.
