Why Should YOU Give?

There is a stunning dichotomy in American education today. American universities are widely considered the best in the world, yet many urban school systems in the United States are failing.

The city of Chicago exemplifies this divide. Its public school system is the third-largest in the nation, responsible for educating more than 400,000 students each year. And yet only a tiny fraction of those students leave school able to read at an eighth-grade level, let alone succeed in college.

Giving to the University of Chicago Charter School provides critical support to the school's 1,800 students and families — it is also an investment in an emerging prekindergarten through twelfth grade model of education, key to the University of Chicago Urban Education Institute's powerful and comprehensive vision to create knowledge for reliably excellent schooling for all.

You can support the students, families, and teachers of the UChicago Charter School and in doing so, help create the programs, tools, and knowledge needed to improve urban public education. Take the opportunity to join this group of donors to enable UEI to shape the future of schooling in Chicago and across the country.
