- Fenger High School Principal Liz Dozier on why she decided to feature her school on CNN's documentary "Chicagoland"

The principal subjects of "Chicagoland" were Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Fenger High School principal Elizabeth Dozier and Chicago Police Department superintendent Garry McCarthy.

Liz Dozier, 37, arrived at Fenger to take the principal's job in 2009.
The school had about 1,200 students at the time. But new charter schools opened and families sought suburban or out-of-state schools. During the last school year, Fenger's enrollment had plummeted to about 270 students, nearly all black and from low-income families. Dozier, along with Mayor Rahm Emanuel, starred in CNN's "Chicagoland," a 2014 documentary that demonstrated problems at Fenger continued unabated after the SIG money ran out. "Test scores have always been a struggle," Dozier told POLITICO, but the school is better off because of the grant. More freshmen are now on track to graduate high school and more students are graduating on time, she said. The story was more or less the same at all four of the Chicago schools that received the funds in 2010: test scores in reading on the state's Prairie State Achievement Examination declined over the course of the three-year grant. After the grant ran out, the percentage of students reading at or above grade level still hovered around 10 percent. What really hampered the turnaround effort, Dozier said, was not the turmoil in the district office or pushback from the union, it was the short life of the grant. As students left, so did staff, draining away institutional knowledge about the school's improvement efforts, she said. Dozier left Fenger in July, for reasons she won't divulge. In addition, violence, unemployment, the economic well-being of the community "all ripple into how and whether kids are able to learn," Dozier added. "The school faces some really unique issues," she said.
