With funding from the CARES Act and the American Rescue Plan, Chicago Public Schools finally has the opportunity to invest in our communities after decades of cuts and decline. Mayor Lightfoot, CEO Jackson (and whoever replaces her) and the City Council must take this opportunity to remove SROs from our schools to prevent them from terrorizing our students. We must take this opportunity to invest in mental health infrastructure and school counselors so we can hault the drastic increase in suicide and suicidal thoughts in our kids. We must take this opportunity to expand, not cut, our arts programs to ensure the next generation thinks critically about the world and can see the beauty in it. We must take this opportunity to invest in special education so that every student is given the chance to succeed and thrive, and is not held back by factors out of their control. For too long, leaders in this city have put first the interests of the well-connected at the expense of low income communities and communities of color. With an infusion of cash from the federal government, our leaders have a chance to right the wrongs of previous leaders and properly invest in our comminities to build a strong future for Chicago.
