Board Votes To Close 49 Chicago Elementary Schools

CHICAGO (CBS)– The Chicago Board of Education on Wednesday voted to close 49 elementary schools, in what is believed to be the biggest single mass shutdown of schools in U.S. history.

Initially, a total of 53 schools were on the chopping block, but four of them were spared.

The closings are part of a plan for the Chicago Public Schools to plug a $1 billion budget deficit.

Snip

The 49 elementary schools will be shut down at the end of this school year.

“Today is a day of mourning for the children of Chicago,” Chicago Teachers’ Union President Karen Lewis said in a statement. “Their education has been hijacked by an unrepresentative, unelected corporate school board, acting at the behest of a mayor who has no vision for improving the education of our children.”
Some of the highest taxes in the nation and a 1 Billion dollar budget deficit.
Nice of the Teachers Union to blame Rahm isn't it?
I would say the Union is "mourning" for the Union and not the kids.
