Parents protest cuts at Burley Elementary School

CaptureParents and teachers held a rally Thursday to protest the elimination of all art programming at Burley Elementary School.

They also spoke out against cuts to English, reading, technology and physical education at the Chicago school.

Burley, located at 1630 W. Barry Ave., is one of the city’s top-scoring neighborhood schools.  Protesters said that’s why they can’t understand the changes.

CPS has only released the details of individual school budget cuts to principals.

But, the education advocacy group Raise Your Hand estimates $45 million in budget cuts have been made so far.
