New CPS Chief Brizard Wants CPS Teachers to Make Home Visits

Posted:

The new chief of Chicago Public Schools Jean-Claude Brizard wants teachers to visit students at home, even in violent neighborhoods.

WLS-TV in Chicago reported that Brizard said at a Thursday news conference that "our students go there every day. Why can't we?" Mayor Rahm Emanuel also was at the news conference.

Brizard says teachers and staff should each be assigned about ten home visits to students each year. Chicago public schools have about 430,000 students.

Brizard also suggested adding more school days to the year by having class on teacher professional development days.

Emanuel appointed Brizard to the top post in April.
