CTU Teach-in on school closings

More than 400 parents, community organizers and union members packed a "teach-in" at King College Prep High School in Kenwood Saturday to build grassroots opposition to plans for shutting down or overhauling 14 Chicago public schools.
"We need to be here. If it's not my school on the list (to be closed) today, it could be tomorrow," said Jeanette Taylor-Smith, vice chairwoman of the Kenwood Oakland Community Organization, who has two children attending local public schools. -- Chicago Tribune
Next battle front: Dec. 13th for a vigil and possible occupation at CPS Headquarters, 125 S. Clark St., 6 PM and then, the following morning, sign up to speak at the Dec. 14th board meeting and make your opposition known.
