Chicago: Roughly A Third Of Turnarounds Remain Low-Performing
The industrious folks at Chicago Public Radio have gathered together data on 12 years of school closings and turnarounds.
Not only that, they also mapped the changes, and determined that roughly a third of the buildings closed and/or turned around remain at the lowest level of performance (Tier 3).
It's well worth a look, whether you're a fan or critic of school turarnound efforts.
Others will disagree, but the 32 percent failure rate doesn't seem objectionable, given the enormity of the issues faced at 100 percent of the schools deemed bad enough to be closed or turned around.
