School Principal: Poverty and Career Options

Principal Kevin Gallick stands next to the logo for George Washington High School, painted on a wall in his school, as he poses for a photo.

In a neighborhood tucked under the Chicago Skyway bridge, nearly to the Indiana border, Kevin Gallick, EdD Urban Education Leadership '13, is leading George Washington High School as the school's principal, with a predominantly Latino and low-income population, Gallick is instilling a college-going culture that ensures students are exploring career paths that may not exist in their neighborhood as they apply to college, as a way to combat the effects of poverty on educational outcomes.
