Today the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) released preliminary PARCC results that purport that less than 30% of students in Illinois are meeting expectations in English and math. While ISBE has been attempting to manage public response by saying no one should be shamed by this, many will still claim that this shows that the majority of our schools, teachers and students are failing.
In analyzing the special education "All Means All" pilot program, RYH found that all means less for many students at these schools. 84% of All Means All schools ended up cutting special ed positions.
We created this visual map so you can see where the All Means All Cuts are: Insert - map CPS FY16 All Means All Schools Proposed Budget Position Changes. Click on the dots to see school names and positions lost.
We received the below information from a member of the North Side Neighborhood Advisory Council (NAC). Each NAC is hosting a public community meeting next week. The North Side NAC's meeting is Wednesday, August 12, from 6:00-8:00pm, unless Intrinsic withdraws their proposal as the NAC requested.
The statement was signed by 24 members of the NAC (unofficial count of participants is 30).
