A significant component of my economic development plan is the development of a fourth tier of education for underserved and forgotten populations throughout the city Рespecially 17-50 year olds without a high school diploma or insufficient certification and training.  What follows is a recent sample list of various programs for Cook County that I have lead teams to organize in my work with criminal justice reform. My full economic development plan taps into and expands upon this listing.

The resources, funding and programs are out there – we need to further coordinate and expand upon the excellent underutilized resources that exist.
