As the mother of CPS students, I think it is critically important that we have a voice in determining how any future CPS school board should be structured because it will be our children who are most impacted.
We cannot expect lawmakers who have not stepped foot in our schools and don't know our communities to make the best decisions about what the board should become. We also cannot expect future board members who have not stepped foot in our schools to make the best decisions on behalf of our children.
Who better than CPS parents themselves to help design what our future school board looks like and serve as board members? We know our communities, our schools, and our children better than anyone else. It is about our children's future and we will always put their interests first. With parents and CPS officials partnering to make educational decisions, we will close the gaps of communication and accomplish more for our students.
