Eleven Atlanta educators convicted of conspiracy in one of the nation’s largest cheating scandals are just now beginning their appeals, more than two years after they were sentenced to prison. Nearly 200 educators in Atlanta public schools were caught up in the scandal, suspected of erasing and correcting student answers on standardized tests, in order to boost scores. They were under enormous pressure from the federal No Child Left Behind law and from their own superintendent, Beverly Hall, who set targets even higher than the federal government. Thousands of students were impacted, and now, many years later, the district has set up a program to offer extra help to those students who remain in Atlanta public schools.

“It is hopeless for the occasional visitor to try to keep up with Chicago. She outgrows his prophecies faster than he can make them.” – Mark Twain, 1883
Chicago was only 46 years old when Mark Twain wrote those words, but it had already grown more than 100-fold, from a small trading post at the mouth of the Chicago River into one of the nation’s largest cities, and it wasn’t about to stop. Over the next 20 years, it would quadruple in population, amazing the rest of the world with its ability to repeatedly reinvent itself.
And it still hasn’t stopped. Today, Chicago has become a global city, a thriving center of international trade and commerce, and a place where people of every nationality come to pursue the American dream.
Chicago is home to…

MAY 12, 1930 The Adler Planetarium, the first planetarium in the western hemisphere, opened to the public. Chicago business leader Max Adler contributed funds for the museum’s construction, a Zeiss projector, and the Mensing Collection of astronomical instruments. South Park Commissioners agreed to assume operating costs. Adler dedicated the institution as a “classroom under the heavens” for popular astronomy education. Philip Fox was the first Director of the Adler (until 1937).
2015 In April, the Adler celebrated the 45th anniversary of the Apollo 13 mission and re-opened Mission Moon, an interactive exhibition that tells the story of America’s first steps to the Moon, featuring artifacts from Captain Jim Lovell’s personal collection. NASA astronauts and flight directors joined Adler Trustees and donors in commemorating this historical moment.
The Museum of Science and Industry, Chicago—one of the largest science museums in the world is home to more than 400,000 square feet of hands-on exhibits designed to spark scientific inquiry and creativity.
Between the World War II submarine, five-story movie screen, 40-foot tornado and the 727, you might wonder how we fit this much discovery inside one museum.
The knowledge and memories you’ll gain on the tours, experiences and events at MSI are just as unforgettable as our exhibits. Our facilitators, experts, special guests and volunteers bring their subjects to life.
Museum of Science and Industry

During the 1870’s, there was a group of Chinese immigrants working in Chicago. The Chinese laborers started coming over to work on the completion of transcontinental railroad. They recruited over 80% of Chinese for laborers. Once the railroad was completed in 1869, the Chinese then moved on to find more work, some of the workers going to Chicago. The anti Chinese act that was put in force stopped the immigration of Chinese from the Pacific Coast to the east. Discrimination against the Chinese increased during 1861. This was because of the declining economic conditions that spread throughout the United States. The depression hit, this left many people out of jobs.

Like no other aquarium in the world
Shedd combines the best of early 20th-century “age of aquariums” characteristics—a diverse, global animal collection surrounded by eye-popping architecture—with 21st-century advances in animal care, environments and interpretation. Excellence and innovation are Shedd traditions, and they began with the founder.
Mr. Shedd’s gift
John G. Shedd wanted to give back to the city in which he had risen from stock boy to president of department store giant Marshall Field & Company. Because every great city in the United States and Europe had a fine aquarium, he decided that Chicago must have the biggest and best.
Mr. Shedd imagined a stately marble building and a collection of aquatic animals from around the world that would complement the two world-class institutions already in Grant Park, the Field Museum and the Art Institute of Chicago.
