ED, Forest Park elementary school honored [D91]

Forest Park Review (Bob Skolnik):
Some people throw up their hands and say that it is just about impossible for low-income children to succeed in school.

But Grant-White School, under the leadership of Principal Wendy Trotter, is showing that kids from low-income families can meet state standards. In recognition of its success, Grant-White was recently named an Illinois Spotlight School and placed on the Illinois Honor Roll.

What are the things you believe contribute to the differences between schools that are succeeding with immigrant, African-American and low income students and those that are failing?
