How have public schools changed alongside the neighborhoods they serve?
In this free, interactive program, we’ll talk about how demographic shifts impact both the content and quality of public education – asking if all students in schools with diverse student bodies are receiving the same quality of education.
Simone Ispa-Landa (Northwestern University) will lead Chicago parents, teachers, and students in a conversation about demographic change in this program at Senn High School, home to one of the most diverse student bodies in CPS.
This event is a partnership between Illinois Humanities, Bending the Arc: The Robert Howard Annual Symposium, and Crossroads Fund.
