School Closure and Race Infographic: Something fishy going on in Chicago?
As discussed in an earlier post, I travelled last week to Chicago for a panel discussion on Reframing Reform: Achieving Equity and Excellence in Public Education held by The Center for Tax and Budget Accountability. As you might expect, the Chicago Public School closures was a prominent part of the conversation. Jitu Brown, a parent and community organizer in Chicago, re-tweeted the following comments from the panel discussion about school closure.
In March, CI dicussed Rhambo’s approach to school closure in the post Mouth agape: What the data tell us about school closure in Chicago. To further inform the discussion, Sylvia Jauregui, a graduate student in the Educational Policy and Planning program at UT-Austin, designed the following infographic (Also check out the early childhood infographic that was posted last week) based on CReATE’s analyses of public data.
