The Chicago education system is becoming a system of choice (even though the quality of options available to poor Black and Brown families is still too limited).  But, with so much choice, it can be kind of stressful for families as they try to wade through it all.  The Chicago Sun-Times recently highlighted what some families go through at this time of the year and a project that is being run by Kids First Chicago to make life a little easier.

Happy holidays…or should we say, “happy hunting”!
