Chicago Public Schools Reviews
Chicago Public Schools is home to one of the largest education school districts in the United States. Every year CPS' numbers are increasing with graduation rate, we always hear stories about young men and women who grew up in CPS Elementary and High Schools doing great things in College! Outside of the politics of the government, CPS has always been a home to thousands of children and their families.
Over the last couple of years, CPS has gone through extensive policy changes. Many students have noticed the new policy changes aimed to increase diversity, foster academic achievement, and protect students. Many of these changes have been positive but there is still a long way to go for the school district. Academic equity, distribution of resources, and fair treatment of teachers and staff are still some of the the issues that CPS must tackle head on in order for all students to be given a chance to succed.
I like Chicago Public Schools because of the opportunities I've had within the International Baccalaureate Program my school offers. It has been challenging, but, has prepared me for college through the level of the work, the workload, and the challenge of time management. But, the school system itself has been appalling. They treat us more like prisoners than they do students. We can't leave class with a pass until ten minutes after the bell, they don't let us leave our lunch period to take advantage of the resources provided to us, and they have an unfair system called Loss of Privilege where if you have too many EXCUSED absences they take away your ability to participate in clubs, field trips, and events such as prom and even graduation. I understand this if you are failing a class or have missed twenty days or more of school. But the cut off is ten days. Its frustrating and needs to be fixed.
