Chicago (CNN)—Chicago school officials said Thursday that they plan to close dozens of schools in a bid to improve education and tackle a $1 billion deficit.
The move would shutter 61 school buildings, including 53 underused schools and one program. The cut represents roughly 10% of all elementary school facilities in Chicago Public Schools, the country’s third-largest school district.
CPS currently has 403,000 students, with seats for more than 511,000, and close to 140 of its 681 schools are more than half empty, according to the district.
These careless, budget cutting liberals. Taking education away from chicldren. Raise taxes a ton and close schools…that is as ugly as it gets.
I bet they wish they enacted Scott Walker’s reforms right about now.
Just a waste of mone anyway. Chicago public schools turn on a whopping amount of functionally illiterate dopes that are useless until they can vote Democrud.
