Sartain, Lauren

​Lauren Sartain discusses the GoCPS (Go Chicago Public Schools) process used by parents and students to select the appropriate CPS high school, and the research in which she has participated. This research, performed by a combination of the University of Chicago Educational Research Consortium and the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, looked at how the GoCPS system functioned and how school selection using the lottery and student points worked. One research project followed a freshmen class as it progressed through its high school years, and what role distance (home to school) played in that decision.
