A three-month investigation of Chicago's six new college prep high schools by Catalyst Magazine reveals that the schools "have not been created equal. 'College Prep: Separate and Unequal' reports on what amounts to a north-south divide of resource allocation. College preps located on the North Side of Chicago are housed in lavish facilities and principals had at least nine months of lead time to hire staff and develop curriculum. But college preps based on the city's South Side, which serve predominantly African-American communities are housed in older buildings (many in dire need of rehab work) and most principals had fewer than 30 days to convert staff and curriculum to the new academic format."
