Chicago's Kindergarteners Take In The First Day Of School

It’s the first day of public school in Chicago and many of the city’s youngest students will be heading into an actual classroom for the very first time. WBEZ’s Becky Vevea and Sarah Karp talked with incoming kindergarteners across the city to find out what this milestone means to them. 

We spoke with incoming kindergarteners and some of their teachers at Brentano Math & Science Academy, Murray Language Academy, Hawthorne Scholastic Academy, and the Academy for Global Citizenship.
