Barbara Eason-Watkins on Harlan

Well she was when this article was published in the Defender the Chief Education Officer of CPS. The position remains unfilled currently however this is what she has to say about Harlan:
She pointed to modifications CPS instituted at Harlan and Harper high schools on the South Side as an example of schools in Black communities benefiting from changes.

“Those were two schools that once struggled to produce satisfactory graduation rates. But with changes we incorporated at both schools attendance and graduation rates have improved and continue to improve,” she said. “Principals play a critical role in a school improving. That’s why it is so important to have the right leadership in place at schools.”
I wonder what those modifications were? As always this is considered very good news.

Oh yeah, need to work on that LSC blog post.
