Current Issue

Teacher turnover

CPS has never had a strong, districtwide program of teacher induction and mentoring to stem an attrition rate that is higher than the national average. Instead, efforts to retain teachers depend on smaller-scale programs and individual principals who make it a goal to empower—and keep—their teachers.

Panelists debate future of charter schools

The conversation quickly got heated at a Nov. 14 forum sponsored by Catalyst Chicago and the Better Government Association. After Catalyst Editor In Chief Lorraine Forte presented a primer on charter schools, Publisher Linda Lenz moderated a panel about their role in CPS.

Panelists at the event, "Charter Schools, Neighborhood Schools and Public Education in Chicago," included Chicago Teachers Union Staff Coordinator Jackson Potter, Illinois Network of Charter Schools President Andrew Broy, and University of Chicago sociology professor Charles Payne.
