Ashley McCall
Teaching Policy Fellow
Illinois

Chicago teacher Ashley McCall was one of the headliners at the Rally and Footrace for Fair School Funding in Springfield, Illinois.  The rally drew hundreds of parents, students, teachers, and community members. Teach Plus Fellows organized the Footrace for Fair School Funding, an obstacle-filled student race that clearly demonstrated inequities between wealthy and poorer districts.  Ashley McCall, along with Fellows Shonda Ronen and Traci Dean, spoke at the rally, sharing the stage with policymakers and superintendents.  Ashley, along with Fellows Bill Curtin and Kali Skiles, also spoke about funding reform on PBS Chicago Tonight.
