Editorial: Pedro Martinez’s ascent to CPS boss was “historic.” But here’s how he can make our schools better.


Time will tell whether Martinez, who takes over later this month, is the right choice. In terms of experience, he’s an accountant, not an educator. His predecessor, Janice Jackson, was a teacher who, at the age of 27, founded her own school. Jackson steered CPS through some of its most trying crises — the Tribune’s “Betrayed” investigative series that uncovered the vast incidence of sexual violence against students; the 11-day teachers strike in fall 2019; and most recently, the pandemic-forced transition from in-class instruction to remote learning during the 2020-21 school year.
