Introducing Kids First Chicago
KidsFirstChicago.org is a new resource for parents and community members to research and identify high-quality schools in their neighborhood, and see what other parents and alumni are saying about public education options in Chicago.
Despite remarkable progress in our city, students still struggle to find high-quality schools close to home. In fact, 75,000 students are trapped in failing Chicago schools.
For families savvy enough to navigate the system or those who are simply lucky, they may be fortunate to enroll in a high-quality school.
A family should not have to depend on luck or their ability to navigate complexity to ensure their children are getting an education that will prepare them for college, career, and life.
ABOUT NEW SCHOOLS FOR CHICAGO New Schools for Chicago is committed to changing the dialogue—putting “kids first” policies and school quality at the forefront of public discussion—so that policies are changed and high-quality school options thrive.
