– How have the Chicago school closures affected you and your community?
– School to prison pipeline.
– What do teachers do?
-What are alternative learning models?

– Is school culturally relevant?
– People of color and the school system, ie., goverment boarding schools, whitewashing, native americans and cultural genocide.
