    So our district is so big, I often don't know what is going on in different elementary schools, let alone high schools.

    Apparently we have a poetry slam group and competition called Louder Than A Bomb, which is for high schoolers.

    Apparently there was a recently made Documentary.

    There is a solidarity campaign between parent groups and teachers united for our contract battle happening, and I came across this YouTube video featuring a High School poet speaking to his experience. He attends one of the "better" but not elite Chicago Public High Schools. I found it intriguing, but hard to watch at the same time.
