The Chicago Annenberg Challenge was formed in 1995 as part of the national Annenberg Challenge, a project aimed at improving public schools across the United States. Since its beginnings, the Chicago Annenberg Challenge has pursued school reform through intermediary organizations--community- or university-based external partners--linked to networks of schools. This report presents the findings of a study of nine Chicago Annenberg External Partners, their accomplishments, strategies, and the difficulties they face. In addition, this report discusses the implications of these findings for the ongoing work of external partners and organizations that support them.
