Parents whose children attend one of several Chicago Public Schools slated to close due to low-performance were speaking out Thursday.
At Pablo Casals on Chicago’s West Side, where CPS has proposed a turnaround, parents rallied, saying the school has been improving steadily for the past five years.
But some people are supportive of the changes, including the principal at Phillips High School on the South Side. Phillips is one of the schools that will absorb students from schools destined to phase out. The principal there says there is room at his school for more students.
