The Schools Chicago’s Students Deserve is a Chicago Teachers Union document which reframes the discussion dominated by “education reformers”. It focuses on research based reforms, most of which are already in place in the schools of the wealthy, and asks the question: Doesn’t every student in Chicago Public Schools (CPS) deserve to have the same quality education as the children of the wealthy? The paper touches on several remedies, including smaller class sizes, a robust, well-rounded curriculum, and in-school services that address students’ social, emotional, intellectual and health needs. It exposes the failure of CPS in all these areas. For example, Chicago’s classes are some of the largest in the state. The report also details where to obtain the money to fund quality schools for Chicago’s students. For example, the wealthy residents of Illinois can pay their fair share through the implementation of progressive taxation policies and the ending of corporate subsidies and loopholes.
