Meet Chicago’s new school board

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot unveiled a new seven-person school board on Monday that, as she forecasted during the first week of office, includes people with deep experience in Chicago schools, from former graduates to a principal to parent and community advocates. As expected, the board president will be Miguel del Valle, the first Latinx Illinois senator and a one-time mayoral candidate. Other members include parents, Chicago schools alums, and educators.
