Kids First Chicago
About His Project
Today, Chicago’s poor children go to schools that are not preparing them for college, career, or life, and every day the discussion about education is focused on adult interests rather than the success of children. Through his role as Chief Executive Officer of New Schools for Chicago, Daniel Anello is creating a platform for parents and students to make school quality so resonant that decision-makers are compelled to support education policy that prioritizes the interests of children rather than the adults.
These efforts will ensure that more of Chicago’s poor children have an opportunity to go on to college and successful careers.
