Several articles and blogs the past several weeks have been lifting up the incredible work happening in Chicago Public Schools. Network member, the Network for College Success (NCS) and BELE Network learning partner, the University of Chicago Consortium on School Research (UCCSR) were both referenced in this news article, UCCSR was also referenced in this article by the Brookings Institute about school autonomy in Chicago. Finally, Bill Gates wrote a blog piece about the use of data in Chicago Public Schools to increase the number of “on-track” 9th grade students, specifically lifting up the work of NCS. Kudos to NCS and UCCSR for their work!
