About the Report:
New Schools for Chicago’s new report—Who is sitting in those seats?—analyzes Chicago schools’ performance from 2011 to 2017, with particular emphasis on identifying which kids, families, and neighborhoods are most impacted by low-performing schools. Key findings include:

  • The total failing seats at CPS has decreased to roughly 50,000 in 2017 from more than 161,000 in 2011. In 2011, all of Chicago’s 77 communities had one or more failing school. Today, 36 Chicago communities have no failing schools.

  • CPS’ nearly 50,000 failing seats are highly concentrated in predominantly African American and Hispanic communities, with four communities – Austin, Englewood, Near West Side, and West Englewood – having 25 percent of Chicago’s failing schools.

  • One in four African American students is enrolled in a school with a failing seat, compared to two in twenty-five Hispanic students, and two in one hundred white students.
