Another dozen Chicago public schools closed for good today as CPS leaders announced new plans for getting kids to their new schools safely.

The so called Safe Passage program proposes hiring 600 people to run routes where 12,000 students will be attending new schools.

The program will be staffed by police officers, city workers and community volunteers.

Angry parents still aren’t satisfied, blaming Mayor Emanuel for the closures.

Some of them rallied outside one school, trying to register voters to vote him out of office.
