Carlos Ramirez-Rosa Calls on Mayor, CPS to Approve Bronzeville Community’s Dyett High School Plan

Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Education

On Wednesday, Aug. 26th, 35th Ward Alderman Carlos Ramirez-Rosa stood in support of the 12 hunger strikers at Dyett High School in Bronzeville, saying “while Chicago Public School bureaucrats sit in a newly remodeled office and make decisions to underfund our neighborhood schools, Bronzeville neighborhood parents and community leaders are on hunger strike fighting to open Dyett Global Leadership & Green Technology High School, the quality public school their children deserve. This is true parent involvement. These are the heroes of Chicago, and when I was invited to support them I did not hesitate to stand by their side this morning. I call on Mayor Rahm Emanuel and his appointed Board of Education to listen to Bronzeville families and immediately approve the community-driven plan for Dyett High School.”
