Harper High School (Chicago) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Harper High School (Chicago) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

"The majority of students are African American. Harper was the first public school in Chicago to be a part of the Turnaround project started by former Chicago Public Schools CEO Arne Duncan.[2] Harper High School gained national attention when the school was featured on The Oprah Winfrey Show. The show discussed Harper High School's lack of computers and other essential learning tools for its students. The Rev. Jesse Jackson has been a big advocate for the school and its lack of funding.[citation needed] Harper High School was also the focus of two episodes of "This American Life" in February 2013, to look into the fact that 29 current and recent students were shot (including 8 fatally) last year.
