Eight Forty-Eight

New board could mean new direction for Chicago Public Schools

Jean-Claude Brizard is just one of many new Chicago Public Schools officials Mayor-elect Rahm Emanuel named on Monday. The district now has a permanent Chief Education Officer, after a long period without one. And there will be a new President and Vice President at the Chicago Board of Education, which provides oversight for CPS.

To find out more about these new appointees and what could be expected from them, Eight Forty-Eight turned to Linda Lenz from Catalyst Chicago.
