The goal of this project is to produce a series of policy briefs grounded in the lives of the community members affected by school closings, school turnarounds, and phase outs. Unlike the Chicago Public School's school actions, which have been top-down decisions, lacking democratic process and transparency, we will organize forums to encourage community dialogue regarding these school actions and seek out alternative visions for school reform. In addition, we will participate in community meetings to share research.
