Education Forum: January Special Meeting

Education Choice Forum – Open to All

Benjamin Franklin once said “An investment in education pays the best interest.” It follows that the better the education the better interest results. With this in mind the South Lakeview Neighbors organization is presenting principals from 5 top area CPS schools –

  • Burley,
  • Jahn,
  • Agassiz,
  • Prescott and
  • Lakeview H. S.

All of these schools have boundaries that include parts of South Lakeview Neighbors as well as the greater Lakeview area. Local parents, including those beyond immediate area or who plan on moving into the area, with current or future school age children will have the opportunity to listen, ask and get answers to questions regarding the fine educational opportunities at these schools. This is a rare opportunity to get personal input into one of the most important decisions that a parent can make – where and how their children get educated in their formative years.

This meeting is open to everyone with an interest in the schools in our community. Please invite your friends who might consider schools in our neighborhood, whether members or not, whether they live here now or now.

Feel free to make a small “investment” of about an hour and half on Tuesday Jan 10, 7pm at the Athenaeum Theater, 2936 N Southport. Doors and lobby bar open at 6:30pm.
