Six schools are slated for overhauls next year, under the district’s ‘turnaround’ strategy that will put the Academy for Urban School Leadership in charge of Orr High and two feeder elementary schools; and the district in charge of Harper High and two of its feeders. What will it take to make failing schools succeed? Guests: Donald Feinstein, executive director of the Academy; Josh Edelman, head of CPS Office of New Schools.
