Ewing Free read Ghosts in the Schoolyard ??s answer begins with a story of systemic racism ineuality bad faith and distrust that stretches deep into Chicago history Rooting her exploration in the historic African American neighborhood of Bronzeville Ewing reveals that this issue is about much than just schools Black communities see the closing of their schools schools that are certainly less than perfect but that are theirs as one in a long line of racist policies The fight to keep them open is yet another front in the ongoing struggle of black people in America to build successful lives and achieve true self determinati. A sociologist examines the 2013 Chicago public school closings bringing in the history of Chicago social movements city systems neighborhood reputationsIt s a fascinating and disturbing topic I think the book is hampered a bit by being very clearly graduate work Chapter 4 in particular reads like a chapter from an academic s dissertation or thesis A lot of really interesting points are for some reason relegated to the notes section And by interesting points I mean some of the endnotes are literally 2 pages of topical information and analysis that I think would ve fit perfectly into the chapters Also I think this book missed out by not including anything about the Chicago Teachers union and their knock down drag out fight with Mayor Emanuel very little about how budgets were doled out and barely mentioned the impact of charter schools As an explanation for what caused the school closings this felt patchy but the chapters on people s responses to the school closings were rich meaty and informative

Read & Download ´ Ghosts in the Schoolyard ´ E-book, or Kindle E-pub review ´ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ò Eve L. Ewing Free read Ghosts in the Schoolyard Communities storehouses of history and memory that bring people together   Never was that role apparent than in 2013 when Mayor Rahm Emanuel announced an unprecedented wave of school closings Pitched simultaneously as a solution to a budget problem a response to declining enrollments and a chance to purge bad schools that were dragging down the whole system the plan was met with a roar of protest from parents students and teachers But if these schools were so bad why did people care so much about keeping them open to the point that some would even go on a hunger strike   Ewing?. I read this book because it was on the discussion list for the Open Discussion Project at Anderson s our local bookstore It is a pretty fast read and provided a lot of information on the challenges within Bronzeville the almost exclusively black area on Chicago s south side Very eye opening for me to learn about the challenges and history associated with the CHS Chicago Housing System and CPS Chicago Public Schools This book specifically focused on the 2013 closings of 50 elementary schools within Bronzeville The community banded together to protest and fight the closings as they felt their voices and culture were being ignored While I really liked the learnings the stats provided the school board structure info the community culture etc I hope there is a follow up book discussing solutions Tough deeply embedded issues need to be addressed and Chicago s new Mayor Lori Lightfoot might just hold the keyThe Chicago Real Estate Board CREB actively encouraged restrictive covenants private agreements between property owners and Real Estate Agents that homes were not to be sold to or occupied by black people sending advocates and speakers across the city to praise the strategy to white property owners It also voted to expel any of its members who rented or sold to black people on a block otherwise occupied by white residents Ghosts in the Schoolyard Racism and School Closings on Chicago s South Side by Eve L Ewing

Ewing Free read Ghosts in the Schoolyard “Failing schools Underprivileged schools Just plain bad schools”   That’s how Eve L Ewing opens Ghosts in the Schoolyard describing Chicago Public Schools from the outside The way politicians and pundits and parents of kids who attend other schools talk about them with a mix of pity and contempt   But Ewing knows Chicago Public Schools from the inside as a student then a teacher and now a scholar who studies them And that perspective has shown her that public schools are not buildings full of failures they’re an integral part of their neighborhoods at the heart of their.
