Appellate Court Decision is Illogical and Wrong

COAL is saddened and angry to report that in one of the most illogical rulings by the Illinois Appellate Court, it reversed the circuit court’s 2023 ruling in favor of Urban Prep, which we thought had ended CPS’ fixation with shutting down Urban Prep.

In a well-written decision, Judge Loftus ruled in 2023 that charter schools were under the same moratorium as other schools under the control of CPS and therefor CPS could not revoke its charter, as long as the moratorium was in place.

Please read on for COAL’s take on what we believe is an illogical reversing decision by the Appellate Court.
