CPS CEO Attends a Town Hall Hosted by CPU

Approximately 500 families and charter supporters emptied off of buses as the rain came down on Wednesday, September 18th to have their voice heard and their questions answered by CPS CEO Barbara Byrd-Bennett. Those in attendance packed the auditorium at Chicago Bulls College Prep to ensure that Byrd-Bennett addressed their concerns and made her stance known on charters. At the urging of a CPU advocate and charter parent, among the biggest successes of the evening was Byrd-Bennett's promise to have a charter parent advisory council assembled by October 31st.
