How about you concentrate on your lousy test scores? Rhetorical question: How are you graduating so many students!?
This slipped under the radar and I apologize for not catching it sooner since I’m obsessed with my home city.
Chicago Public Schools (CPS) eliminated sex-specific bathrooms on Wednesdays to make the schools more inclusive. Because we all know that’s important and obviously sticks with their promise to provide the kids with a safe learning environment.
Every bathroom has a sign showing that anyone can use the bathroom. Boys+ and Girls+ appear above the bathroom entrances.
“This is an incredibly important step to increase gender equity for all,” said Camie Pratt, the CPS Title IX officer.
ICYMI: We’re requiring all schools to adopt new signage to make our restrooms more inclusive. This is a big step forward for gender equity for our students and staff. pic.twitter.com/4JPBdd1jQy

Cook County is about to become the next Loudoun County!
How about we concentrate on education? Test scores dropped during the pandemic but honestly…CPS did not achieve decent test scores before the pandemic:
At CPS, 21% of kids met or exceeded English standards this year, compared to 28% in 2019. In math, only 16% met or exceeded expectations, down from 24% the year before the pandemic. The test wasn’t administered last year.
Similar trends, though not as steep, were seen on the SAT college-entrance exam administered to 11th-graders.
About 23% of students met or exceeded expectations in English this year, down from 26% in 2019. And 21% reached satisfactory levels in math this year compared to 27% before the pandemic.
Totally focused on the most important things 🙄 pic.twitter.com/KkvSlNXGLf

And this is going to make more poor/black/minority students graduate and go to college?
Shame on you! You don't have what it takes to meet your main goals, so you create new goals?

Chicago Public Schools graduate 84% of students–when only 26% of 11th graders are proficient in reading and math.
But CPS focuses on gender neutral bathrooms.#FridayMorning https://t.co/rNePHBXsae https://t.co/KgT5ltg1ei
