A Letter from our CEO: “Chicago’s Principals Will Reimagine School After the Pandemic”


On this #20thAnniversaryTuesday, in a letter from The Fund's CEO Heather Anichini, she argues that principals' voices are needed at the decision-making table for what schools look like after the pandemic.

"We have an opportunity now to take what school leaders have learned over the past year and make bigger and better plans for the future. But first, we need principals at the table alongside other local leaders."
