Chicago's Best Public Schools Are Non-Union

You have to test to get into some of Chicago’s public high schools – others you don’t.

Pritzker College Prep is in the Noble Network of Charter Schools. Student Fabi Gomez chose it for its drive and discipline.
“From day one, it’s like going to college – not only going to college, but graduating from college,” said Gomez.

Teachers do not belong to a union. They get bonuses for performance. School days are longer.
