Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel toured the Michele Clark Academic Preparatory High School on Chicago’s West Side. Michele Clark is one of Chicago’s five Early College Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Schools, which leverage public private partnerships and community college classes to provide students with rigorous learning opportunities and accelerated pathways to college and a career.
“What is happening in classrooms here in Chicago is a perfect example of the public and private sectors working together through innovative partnerships to help ensure that the next generation has the tools and resources they need to be prepared for college and to succeed in the global workforce,” said Jewell in a meeting with Emanuel and school officials.
