CTU President: Closing schools means giving up on neighborhoods
Teachers, students and parents will gather outside City Hall Monday –wrapping their three-day protest of school closures.
The demonstration organized by the Chicago Teachers Union is a stand against plans to close more than 50 Chicago Public Schools.
Over the weekend, marchers visited areas that will be impacted by the closings.
Parents are concerned their children will have to walk longer distances or go through dangerous areas to get to their new schools.
The school board votes on the closure plan on Wednesday.
CTU President Karen Lewis joined WGN Morning News Monday morning to touch on the protests and school closures.
