Inside Chicago's school "renaissance"

New I.G. investigation

Here's how they clean up high school dropout rates at CPS. They keep "ghost students" on the books long after they've left school. This is how they did it in Houston to produce the so-called "Texas Miracle" during the Bush/Paige era. Now Chicago schools do it in order to survive massive budget cuts. It's the same reason there's so much cheating on high-stakes tests. Watch  for classroom teachers to get blamed.
