Getting Tough in Chicago.
Jones, Rebecca
American School Board Journal, v184 n7 p24-26 Jul 1997
Two years after CEO Paul Vallas was brought in to run the Chicago Public Schools, the schools report higher scores on standardized tests, better attendance, and higher graduation and lower dropout rates. Of 557 schools, 109 were placed on probation, and students were held accountable for their performance. (LMI)
