    As someone who spent a lot of time evaluating the first wave of community school models here in Chicago, I am excited to see the progress in conceptualizing the workings and impacts of community schools in ways that articulate to the broader conversation about data-informed school improvement. Congratulations to the authors and the community school advocacy community.

    You don’t focus on how you bring about Community Schools and where does the leadership come from. Is there not a need for a Comm. Schools coordinato? Who can make this happen?.

  • In our fast paced world with nuclear families, I believe community schools are our missing link for the future.
