Since 2002, nearly all of Chicago’s principals and 10 percent of the city’s teachers have directly benefited from a Fund-related program. Over that same period, talented principals have led educators to narrow the achievement gap between Chicago’s elementary school students and their Illinois peers. The growing number of strong educators in our schools means tens of thousands of our students are better prepared for success in our global economy.
