Yes, spend money fix up schools with low enrollment in neighborhoods where residents are fleeing. CPS has been doubling down on stupid for 100 years!


New cps $7.7 billions 2019/2020 budget for 361,000 students or $7.7 bill / 361,000 = crazy $21,300 per student (w minimal benfit payments and not inc $ state picks up). Beyond insane in a city with medium family income of $43gs. Crain’s Chicago Business: Public Schools $7.7 billion budget released.


Your right. $21K per student is crazy but that is the average. What is the average for schools that have 200 or fewer that could hold 1200? Is there a breakdown of individual school costs vs enrollment? All schools have principals/ bloated administrations plus all the upkeep.
