Special Chicago Forward luncheon

Do charter schools sap resources from neighborhood schools? Should all students have the right to select their school? Chicago Tribune Editorial Page Editor Bruce Dold and a panel of educators and community leaders will discuss the future of public education at Chicago Forward: The School Choice Debate. This event is part of the Editorial Board’s “New Plan of Chicago” initiative. 

In the spirit of Daniel Burnham, the editorial board of the Chicago Tribune has asked readers for a new “Plan of Chicago” to address the challenges facing our city. In 2014, “Chicago Forward” will dig deeper into those issues that matter most to Chicagoans. Read the editorial board series at chicagotribune.com/plan.  

The panel:

  • Cinda Klickna - President, Illinois Education Association
  • Beth Purvis – CEO, Chicago International Charter Schools
  • Jitu Brown – Education organizer, Kenwood Oakland Community Organization
  • Tim King – CEO, Urban Prep Academies
