Judge denies request to stop CPS closings

School closings in Chicago will go ahead as planned as a federal judge denies a request to stop them.

Parents filed lawsuits backed by the Chicago Teachers Union to stop the closings.

They argued shutting-down 50 schools unfairly affected minority and special education students.

However, the judge denied their request for a preliminary injunction to halt the closings.

An attorney for the parents will review the judge’s ruling before determining the next course of action.

Chicago Public School students begin class in 10 days.
