Major figures in public education - Terry Mazany, Linda Lutton, Andrea Zopp, Karen Lewis, David Vitale, and Jitu Brown - help connect the dots between decades old education policies, demographic shifts, and the challenges facing CPS today.

This short film is a trailer for the second episode of The School Project, a documentary series by an exciting consortium of Chicago filmmakers including Siskel/Jacobs Productions, Kartemquin Films, Media Process Group, Free Spirit Media, and Kindling Group. The project is also partnering with the Chicago Sun-Times, WTTW-Chicago, Catalyst Chicago, The Chicago History Museum, and Ebony.com.
