Since CEO Arne Duncan took over as head of CPS, private and government grants have skyrocketed from $2 million to $29 million. Duncan’s steady leadership and a focus on crafting long-term improvements are paying off for the district. Corporate partnerships with new schools created under Renaissance 2010 are also on the rise. Guests: Alyson Cooke, director of external resources for CPS, and Connie McHugh, senior program officer for the Renaissance Schools Fund.
