Education Events This Week

On Wednesday, the Board of Education meets to decide among other things whether or not they're going to close all four schools as recommended to them last month.  My guess is they do, but who knows.

On Thursday, 826CHI is hosing a fundraiser with wine and dumplings.It begins at 6:30 p.m. at 1331 N. Milwaukee, and costs $20;
tickets can be ordered on the website.826CHI
sponsors a lot of after-school writing and tutoring programs for kids
in the neighborhood. If you're interested in volunteering, they are
always looking for help.(via Gapers Block via mmmChicago.com)
