Investing in Teachers Instead of Prisons

I want to tell you about something I'm not proud of. Early in my time as CEO of Chicago Public Schools, we set out to make our schools safer places for children and adults. We knew that too many of our students were going to jail.

"Yes, it's about educational and economic opportunity. But it's bigger than that. It's a fight to increase social mobility. It's a fight for social justice. For too many of our children today, it can literally mean the difference between life and death."
