A Mother’s Day Special - A story about two gutsy moms ventured inside Nettelhorst, their neighborhood’s underutilized and struggling public elementary school, the new principal asked what it would take for them to enroll their children. Stunned by her candor, they returned the next day armed with an extensive wish list.
How to Walk to School is a true story—from the highs to the lows—of motivated neighborhood parents galvanizing and then organizing an entire community to take a leap of faith, transforming a challenged urban school into one of Chicago’s best, virtually overnight.
Jacqueline and I will be discussing her life’s journey and How to Walk to School - an accessible and honest blueprint for reclaiming the great public schools our children deserve.
