Tribune Article Regarding Legacy Charter School's Proposed Move to the Pope School Building

Here is a link to a Tribune story regarding Legacy's proposed move to the Pope building.

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/education/ct-charter-closed-school-met-20140224,0,4437019.story

I am also including a link to a copy of comments I shared on the subject prior to the last CAC meeting for further context. http://www.scribd.com/doc/207842276/Comments-on-Proposal-to-Move-Legacy-Charter-School-Into-Pope-School-Building

    I knew their next step would be media outlets. They did not even wait for the North Lawndale CAC to say if they were for or against the proposal. Now I'm leary of Legacy they have an apparent line to CPS and Bird Bennett. You want community support but you go to the media.

Check Out My Sister's Play, Sunday, February 23, 2014

I'm not posting this as an event, as I would like this to show up in the Lawndale community.

If you have a chance, come out to see my sister's play, "Don't Get it Twisted", at Argo Temple COGIC 7435 W. 64th Street Summit, IL . The play starts at 5:00 pm, and admission is free. She writes a new play every year for Black History Month.

  • Valerie F. Leonard Lawndale Community Builder and Policy Analyst

    Thanks everyone who came out to see my sister's play. The play dealt with the need to study black history and providing truth behind some of the negative black stereotypes.
