Protesters to rally in Daley Plaza over school closings

A three-day march aimed at saving dozens of Chicago public schools wraps up with a rally in Daley Plaza Monday afternoon.

Teachers, students and parents have been walking across the city since Saturday to call attention to the proposed closings of 54 chicago schools.

Opponents say the cuts will endanger children who have to walk through dangerous neighborhoods to get to their new schools.

CPS says the closings are needed to cut a projected $1 billion budget deficit.

The board votes Wednesday on the school cuts.
