Incoming alderman, parents' groups renew push for elected CPS board

Several parents' groups and incoming Chicago aldermen called on state lawmakers to pass a measure Monday that would enact an elected Chicago school board.

The measure passed the Illinois House last month, but it has stalled in the Senate.

Mayor-elect Lori Lightfoot promised to push for an elected board during her campaign.

As of now, the mayor appoints members to the board.
