Back to School

For more than a month, Chicago Public Radio, along with partners WTTW Channel 11, the Chicago Reporter, the Chicago Public Library and Catalyst magazine, is shining a bright spotlight on education issues through its "Chicago Matters" series. For an example of the reporting depth that this series boasts, listen to Lisa Miller's story, "Pay to Play," on Chicago Public Radio about a public school which hasn't had recess in 25 years and the moms who are fighting to bring it back. Other topics in the series include schools that rely on large fundraisers to make ends meet, the plight of rural schools with small tax bases and a debate team that is out to conquer the odds.
