Global Views: School Closings Protest

The whole world wasn't watching, but these folks were.

1. Al-Jazeera (English).

"Thousands of teachers in the third largest US city of Chicago are protesting against plans to shut down schools in poor neighbourhoods."


2. The Real News Network.

"Teachers, workers and activists hope to pressure Chicago to abandon plans to close 61 schools."


3. RT America.

"Chicago Public Schools has announced that 61 buildings will be closed in an effort to save money due to a drop in the enrollment numbers, but the money saving maneuver has produced many angry parents."


ADDED 3/29: ITN.

Note: CPD's News Affairs "estimated" the crowd at 700-900, which much of the media repeated, but the Sun-Times reports that at least 2,750 people were there.


Comments welcome.
