Statement from U.S. Senator Mark Kirk on the grand opening ceremony at the LEARN Charter School Network's North Chicago campus
"I would like to congratulate the LEARN Charter School Network today on it's North Chicago campus grand opening ceremony. Eight out of the top ten nonselective public schools in Chicago are charter schools. What we see is working in Chicago can certainly work in the community of North Chicago to improve educational opportunities for local families and those stationed at Great Lakes. I commend the Illinois State Board of Education, the community of North Chicago and the U.S. Navy for their efforts in working together to establish this school."
