Current Issue

College and careers

An overhaul of the district’s career education programs seeks to make classes more challenging and put career-track students on the path to higher ed, but many schools have lost programs, and fewer students are participating overall.

Protesters march against school closings

Protesters marched Monday to oppose CPS plans to shut down under-enrolled neighborhood schools. They also voiced criticism of charter schools and tax-increment financing districts, charging that they drain money from neighborhood schools.


After the march, supporters – including many teachers – rallied inside the Hyatt Regency Chicago, protesting Hyatt’s participation in a Hyde Park development that received tax-increment financing dollars.
