Professor Elizabeth Todd-Breland Publishes Article in The Undefeated

UIC history professor Elizabeth Todd-Breland discusses Lebron James partnering with Akron Public Schools to open a new elementary school on The Undefeated. She notes, "Besides more funding, the community-control movements of yesteryear and today’s sustainable community schools efforts also involved students, parents, teachers and those most directly affected by education policies in school decision-making. As amazing as I Promise is, America requires a fundamental reordering of our funding priorities, a structure that redistributes wealth and decision-making to the most vulnerable among us and to our public institutions for more students to reap these benefits."
