Chicago’s Mayor Says It’s Time to Stop With the ‘False Choices.’ Parents Need Quality Choices.

Check out the article to see why Mayor Emanuel thinks that “promoting choice at the expense of quality isn’t an education strategy” and what education policy leaders can do to provide the quality choices that students deserve.
