There’s always more than one way of looking at something, so I’m going to be really positive about Mayor Rahm’s recent decision regarding Jones College Prep High School.

If you recall, the issue was what to do with the existing building at 606 S. State now that CPS is putting the finishing touches on a new $120 million building just to the south. The new school building will open in the fall.

In contrast, Alderman Robert Fioretti and many local residents had been pressing the mayor to turn the old building into a neighborhood high school open to students—higher scorers, low scorers and everyone in between—from the surrounding communities.
