Does Chicago Have the Worst Schools in the Nation?The School Project Looks for Answers [WATCH]

Does Chicago have the worst schools in the country? In 1987, then-Secretary of Education William Bennett claimed just that. For the past two decades, his words have haunted the city—but was he correct? And have things improved?

A new transmedia offering–The School Project–thoroughly examines the city’s public school system, via short films, an event series, social media and a website. Kartemquin Films (The Interrupters), Media Process Group, Free Spirit Media, the Kindling Group and Siskel/Jacobs Productions unvailed the first film segment with a panel discussion at the Chicago History Museum and the debut of schoolprojectfilm.com.

EBONY.com is a media partner for The School Project and will feature the series’ clips online.
