IMPROVING THE QUALITY OF EDUCATION
COMMUNITIES UNITED FOR QUALITY EDUCATION (CUQE)
Communities United for Quality Education (CUQE), empowers parents and community members from across Chicago to improve the quality of public education and advance education equity for neighborhood schools. Through CUQE, over 4,000 parents have been engaged to advance efforts to support and strengthen Local School Councils (LSC), equitable investments in neighborhood schools, advance restorative justice practices, and building strong community schools. Through these efforts, CUQE parent leaders have secured over $4 million on investments in neighborhood schools.
Communities United also engages parents and students in many other efforts to improve the quality of education. We have worked to secure the construction of two new schools to relieve overcrowding, build a coalition of local schools working to align curriculum across 8th and 9th grade, work towards a common vision of college readiness and more.
