Chicago Public Schools officials are asking students not to take part in a demonstration Wednesday.

A group of students are expected to protest school closures outside the Chicago Board of Education.

But, Wednesday is also when Juniors are scheduled to take the state-mandated PSAE test.

It’s required to move onto Senior year, and to graduate.

The test is also used to evaluate teachers and schools.

CPS sent home letters and made robocalls urging juniors not to miss the test.

    Don't bother taking the tests all you juniors, it's just a waste of time. Remember aim low, so low that even if you succeed no one will notice.

    How many of these CPS juniors will be college bound any way?
    They should be protesting the poor policies and bad teachers that have caused the problems, not the solution to the budget problem. Budgets are supposed to be balanced more often than not. Aren’t they?
