Originally aired September 6, 2005, during our news broadcasts

After months of uncertainty, Uplift Community School in Chicago's Uptown neighborhood finally has the resources it needs to open. But as Chicago Public Radio's Jay Field reports, the school still faces some challenges.

Uplift is one of the first schools in Chicago's Renaissance 2010 program, which aims to open 100 new schools by the year, 2010.
