Consortium on Chicago School Research.

The Consortium on Chicago School Research, which is a partnership between the Chicago Public Schools and the University of Chicago, produced up to eight major reports annually and made 69 presentations on their work for local educators and 30 to 40 more at national conferences last year. The consortium has a 23-member steering committee made up of representatives from the school system, the Illinois State Board of Education, the Chicago Principals and Administrators Association, the Chicago Teachers Union, researchers, civic leaders, and advocates for school reform. The board offers ideas for the research agenda, reviews research designs, shapes the interpretation of preliminary findings, gives feedback on reports, and helps with dissemination.
