Chicago community members go to court to block school "turnarounds"

Feb. 11, 2012
School board scheduled later this month to decide the fate of 17 schools.

From The Chicago Tribune: With an assist from the Chicago Teachers Union, local school council members from nine city schools are asking a judge to block the Chicago school district from closing or "turning around" 17 underperforming schools this year. Union attorneys, working on behalf of the community members, filed for injunctive relief, asking the court to intervene in the closings process. The school board is expected to vote on the issue Feb. 22.
