Jeannette + Angela | Pain & Promise | American Experience | PBS

Audio produced by StoryCorps Studios in partnership with GBH Boston.

In this recording, city alderman Jeannette Taylor and teacher Angela Ross discuss persistent inequalities in Chicago public schools. Jeannette and Angela explore the differences in wealth and resources between schools on the North and South sides of Chicago, and the racial disparities that underlie these truths. They also examine the limited potential for children of color that comes from learning in restrictive and under-resourced environments.

Audio recorded on June 4, 2023 at WTTW in Chicago
