Phillips helps Chicago school district in consolidation talks

When a group of parents and school officials in west Chicago met to discuss combining a high school and its elementary feeder schools into a single system, William Phillips, UIS associate professor of Educational Leadership, was on hand to help them examine the implications of such a move.

Phillips is a recognized authority on the topic. He stressed to the audience that they need a "base of information" on which to make their decision.
