Video: School Closings Discussion

School closings got a spot in the discussion on Friday night's Chicago Tonight Week In Review. Check it out below.  You may also want to read guest panelist Kate Grossman's latest editorial on the closings, which suggests that CPS and City Hall aren't likely to be able to make good on the promises they're making to kids attending consolidated schools.

If the video doesn't work, go here to watch it on WTTW.

  • I am curious as to why Wentworth Elementary was completely rewired with new light fixtures put in all of the classrooms and hallways AFTER it was announced that Wentworth would be moving into the Altgeld building with Altgeld closing and Wentworth becoming the receiving school. Any ideas? Oh, and Altgeld is in a different gang territory with all the attendant issues for the relocated Wentworth students.
