Chicago Public Schools (CPS)

By now most schools have started. However, CPS push their starting date back to after Labor Day because most children wouldn’t show up to school until after Labor Day anyway. I was told that School officials use to go door-to-door reminding people that school is in session. To accommodate these parents and students, they push the starting date back. I think the whole issue says something about the commitment of the parents to the education of their children. No wonder there’s problems in inner city schools.
