Chicago Public Radion: Turnaround school gets turned around again

Reading this article from CPR, Orr High School @ 730 North Pulaski Road reminds me a lot of the Harlan High School I used to know. Want a school to succeed find a way to change the culture of both students and the faculty. It has happened at Harlan, let's hope it happens at other struggling schools around the city. Orr is under the administration of the Academy for Urban School Leadership (AUSL).

EDIT: AUSL also administers Deneen Elementary School @ 7240 South Wabash Avenue. Check out their principal's page.
