Barber Shop Show 156: Education Update

Chicago public schools have been in turmoil. On this week's Barber Shop Show we discuss what's been going on between the recent school closings and other CPS changes. We're joined by: • Austin Community Activist Dwayne Truss. He’s a “self-appointed watchdog of Austin High School”. He’s been watching it closely since the original community school was closed and reopened as three smaller schools. • Lorraine Forte (of Catalyst Chicago) will also be joining us to catch us up on a couple of the recent CPS bombshells. • WBEZ’s Education reporter Linda Lutton will be joining us, too. She’ll also bring some of her stellar radio journalism. The Barber Shop Show airs on Fridays and Saturdays at Noon on 90.7FM and 89.5FM. You can also stream live at
