School Closings

From Urban Education Institute:

A new study released by the Consortium on Chicago School Research tracks the enrollment patterns of nearly 11,000 students required to transition to a new elementary school after Chicago’s 2013 mass school closures. The report found that nearly all students displaced by the closings enrolled in schools with better academic rating than their closed school. However, only one-fifth of students landed at top-tier schools and nearly one quarter went to schools that were lower-performing than the welcoming schools assigned to them by the district.
