CATALYST: FOR CLEVELAND SCHOOLS

CATALYST: FOR CLEVELAND SCHOOLS, 1621 Euclid Avenue, Suite 1530, is an independent newsmagazine covering reform efforts in Clevelands public schools. The magazine was launched in 1999 as a sister publication to CATALYST: Voices of Chicago School Reform, begun in 1990 by a Chicago urban service organization, the Community Renewal Society, with the assistance of four foundations. The Community Renewal Society created a subsidiary, Urban School News, to publish the Cleveland periodical and obtained financial support from The CLEVELAND FOUNDATION, The GEORGE GUND FOUNDATION, and The Joyce Foundation. The publication strives for impartiality in the study of all approaches to school reform. Charlise Lyles, an award-winning journalist who attended Clevelands public schools, has served as editor of CATALYST: For Cleveland Schools.
