Davidson, Mary E.
This document presents the formal response to the 1989-90 Annual Desegregation Review Part II of the Chicago (Illinois) Public Schools. The Commission found that although progress was made toward goals for the school system, more progress is needed. The Commission made the following recommendations: (1) include summary-form numerical data concerning the Chicago Effective Schools Project; (2) include data on the disparities affecting minority students in racially identifiable schools and report on the degree to which those disparities have been eliminated by educational components; (3) study the feasibility of establishing gifted and talented programs for limited English proficient students; (4) use this document to establish the degree to which the curriculum and instruction educational component has attained its three-part goal; (5) report the attainment associated with the eight recommendations in the Consent Decree; (6) answer inquiries of the high school leadership educational component; (7) complete a plan for the Commission's review that details steps and resources for field-testing the Spanish version of the PAL; (8) include data that documents whether or not the Uniform Discipline Code is being well implemented; (9) publish a comprehensive formative and summative evaluation design; and (10) make a sincere effort to include more data in the 1990-91 report.
