The Chicago Tribune looks at plans for ChicagoQuest, a new MacArthur-supported charter school with a curriculum based on the principles of game design and collaborative learning. Located in Chicago’s Near North neighborhood, ChicagoQuest is modeled on the Quest to Learn public school in New York City, which is also supported by the Foundation.
