Alliance to Reclaim Our Schools Director Keron Blair published a powerful op-ed in the Chicago Tribune this week, highlighting the ongoing struggle to win a sustainable community school in Chicago.

Keron suggests that the fight for Dyett is a call to action for all who care about education justice.
