I will be on a panel with Carlos Azcoitia, Member of the Chicago Board of Education, Carol R. Caref, Area A Vice President of the Chicago Teachers Union and Andrea Zopp, Member of the Chicago Board of Education at the City Club of Chicago on my birthday, October 23, 2014. The event will go from 11:30 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. The City Club of Chicago's website has not yet been updated to reflect the event, but typically, there is a reception and luncheon, and the cost is $45.00. We will discuss school closings in Chicago. My focus will be the impact on North Lawndale and similar communities. Andrea Zopp and Carlos Azcoitia will share their perspectives as members of the Chicago Board of Education, and Carol R. Caref will share some of the findings of CTU's research on the impacts of school closings. I will share more information as I get it. This will be a very lively discussion, and I encourage you to attend if you can.
