Yesterday's 'Walk-ins' at 200 schools

At Kenwood H.S.
CPS ‘WALK-INS’ -- “Protesters stage 'walk-in' at 200 CPS campuses," by ABC7's Jessica D'Onofrio: "
Protesters walked into nearly 200 Chicago Public Schools Wednesday as part of a national day of action in defense of schools. The Chicago Teachers Union organized the demonstration. The union said the ‘walk-ins’ are in protest of CPS and what they call the district's failure to address the needs of teachers and students. Teachers, parents, students and community members gathered outside each school about 30 minutes before classes began and marched in as a group. CPS sent a letter home to parents and staff Tuesday saying principals are not to let strangers into the buildings. The union and the district have recently been involved in tense contract negotiations.” --  http://abc7.ws/20FnyXq
