New treasure trove of facts, myth-busting and academic resources on education reform

Chicago mayoral race

From my e-mail:

Dear Education Advocates and Friends:  In the midst of campaigns and debates for the 2011 Chicago mayoral election, we hear many proclamations and promises about what it means to improve public schools.  But how does each candidate compare to what we know so far from research about the real problems and solutions?

Education researchers from throughout Chicagoland have prepared the attached fact sheet (titled, “Chicago School Reform: Myths, Realities, and New Visions”), which we hope that you will find useful in your own work and in our collective movement for a more equitable and just education system.

This document is also available online at http://createchicago.blogspot.com/.  Please help to distribute broadly.

Thank you!
Kevin Kumashiro, on behalf of CReATE
