“The knowledge or skill

obtained or developed by a learning process.” 1

The importance of education for the

Garfield Park can not be overemphasized.

It lays both in realm of personal

development of individual profiles of the residents, and refinement of social skills further facilitating integration in

conventional behavioristic paradigm.

Possibilities for formal education are not distributed equally throughout two neighborhoods which bear the name of Garfield park. While educational institu- tions that offer kindergarten to eighth’s grade pro- grams are scattered around East and West Garfield Park evenly, high school education presented more pronounced in the eastern part. If we examine the amount of students studying in the area once again we see that West Garfield park is a bit more ne- glected. Given the fact that socio-economical situa- tion is quite complicated in the neighborhoods there is clearly a market for vocational training, neverthe- less there are only two schools that provide such service.

Most students attend a certain school, depending on the place of their residence.

Magnet, charter and selective enrolment schools are an exception, they take those who are willing to study there from all over the city on the basis of competition.

Public schools provide universal schooling at the expense of the taxpayer, they are operated by Chicago Public Schools (CPS) district and have an attendance boundaries.

Charter schools are a nation wide program. The majority of such schools are run by private operator.

Usually 80% of their funds come from tax sources, while another part of their budget comes from

private resources.

Magnet schools are public schools without attendance boundaries. They offer a different courses or curricula then a usual schools.

Private schools are not administered by local, state or national governments; Therefor, they retain the right to select their students and are funded fully or partially by levying tuition fees from their students.

Possibilities for higher education for the residents of Garfield Park neighborhoods is limited.

The educational system in the United States remains elitist and exclusive, and therefore higher education institutions are not likely to contribute a lot to upward social mobility in case of East and West Garfield park.

The average tuition fee in a private university in Chicago is 45,200 $ a year, public non-profit uni- versity in Chicago requires 29,350 $ on average.

With median household income in two

neighborhoods of 25,685 $, only 9,03% of people living in Garfield park area possess bachelors degree or higher, while city average is 33,6%.

From the acquired statistical data it is apparent that average performance of students in elementary and middle schools in East and West Garfield park is more than satisfactory and even exceeds state standards. Nevertheless, in high school students show dramatically different results, by all measures their performance drops below average.

The major contributing factor to this is the fact that older children are less influenced by their parents and teachers and as a consequence are more vulnerable to unhealthy influence from the marginal street culture.

Another factor could be the segregated school population which is deprived from some positive examples from different cultures and social classes.

The character of employment in the Chicago reflects the situation in the United states. The majority are occupied in the post industrial sectors of economy as opposed to the situation in 20th century, when most people were employed in the labour and farm- ing jobs. Dramatic shift in employment market in Chicago occurred in the 80’s when transfer of many manufacturing industries to countries with less

expensive labour became possible and profitable.

This change resulted in reorientation of human resources into service sectors of the economy, where wages are significantly lower. These new conditions are a determining factor affecting the situation of poverty in Chicago and directly in Garfield Park.

After the economical crisis in 2008 unemployment grew steadily, only in recent years the amount of people deprived of work started to shrink.

Combined percentage of unemployed in East and West Garfield Park is 22,7%, that is one of the highest figures in whole Chicago. Neighborhoods around Garfield Park are surrounded by 4 industrial corridors, which provide about 25,000 jobs, amount of people of working age living in the area is

estimated to be 27,384, but only 5,8% are employed in the production sector. It is evident that employment in a modern industries requires high skills, while the majority of the population in Garfield Park possess only a high school diploma they are not able to be employed in the manufacturing occupations due to lack of appropriate training and are forced to seek for jobs in less appealing sectors of economy.

The reasons behind devastating drop-out statistics are active factor in the lives of many students in the area of Garfield Park. Analysis of life prospects of former students who decided to leave school before time shows that dropouts earn far less than their more persistent peers and are less likely to find a suitable job.

Based on an assessment of schools in Chicago, so- cial scientists in the University of Chicago identified five major assets that constitute a school whose stu- dents show appropriate results. If their suggestions would be followed, such a pitiful drop-out numbers can be minimized.

Conclusions:

The situation with education in general is assessed as unsatisfactory. Although the schools in Garfield Park are as good as they can be within current ed- ucational system, the performance of the students remain below state average mainly due to compli- cated socio-economical situation of students and their parents. While jobs that offer high wages de- mand high skilled labour, schools are not designed to provide such workers.

when parents are less involved The amount of schools and services

they offer is satisfactory
