CPS Gets Angry Feedback at Meeting on Closing of Four High Schools

A meeting to allow community members to provide feedback on Chicago Public Schools' plan to close four high schools (Harper, Hope, Robeson and TEAM Englewood) quickly became an angry shouting match Wednesday night. In the first of three meetings planned, attendees voiced objections to CPS spending $85 million to build a new high school in Englewood (termed a consolidation) rather than using the funds to improve existing schools (via Chicago Sun-Times).
