Stop the closing of the Chicago Public Schools Targeted by Mayor Rahm Emanuel and CPS CEO Barbara Byrd-Bennett


"Dear Mr. President"  We NEED your backup!  The mayor and the CEO of the CPS are killing our community and we are not going to take it.. If you can spend money on Afghanistan, Iraq and other efforts outside of our country please make sure our schools don't close down.  You owe it to OUR kids!!!  We supported you, now it's your turn to show us that you support the children!

      The CPS Utilization formula calls for 30 students in a class... this includes students with special needs. Clearly, either the Board is hoping for Lawsuits or lying. Either way, it makes no sense.

      Used to live near Chicagoland, and I know teachers in the area, and I value education over charter school dollars.

      Our children should not have to sacrifice their safety or their lives for an education.
