Statement From Mayor Emanuel On Today's Chicago Board of Education Vote

Mayor's Press Office    312.744.3334

I want to thank CEO Byrd-Bennett, the Board, the Commission and the tens of thousands of community members who have played an invaluable role in helping to ensure every child in this city has access to an education that matches their full potential. I know this is incredibly difficult, but I firmly believe the most important thing we can do as a city is provide the next generation with a brighter future.  More hard work lies ahead, but I am confident that together with teachers and principals, engaged parents and community support, our children will succeed.
