To&Through Research Spotlight: Chicago’s Enrollment Crisis
How are equity issues in Chicago Public Schools (CPS) exacerbated by the reality of declining student enrollment? How does declining enrollment affect funding for the district? Join us on Thursday, June 9 at 2 PM (CST) to learn about Kids First Chicago’s new report on CPS’ enrollment crisis and its implications. Presenters will also explore how parent-led solutions could keep families in Chicago and attract new ones, and how Kids First is engaging in this work to leverage parents as problem-solvers.
Opportunity for post-event discussion: Previous Research Spotlight attendees have requested opportunities to come together after the event and reflect on what they heard. In response to these requests, we will hold an optional, half-hour Zoom meeting immediately after the event for attendees to convene in breakout rooms and explore a reflection question posed by the featured researchers with fellow audience members. Our audience typically spans across district central offices, nonprofits, higher education institutions, and more.
If you would like to join this post-event discussion, just check the box when you register for the event. We will also provide the Zoom link at the end of the Research Spotlight webinar.
