CPS Closings: 129 Schools Still Eligible for Closure


“What I don’t like is people getting up in arms when the house in burning down. I would rather people get up in arms when you see smoke.” - Host Brian Babylon, on the public reaction to CPS potential closures. 

Last week, Chicago Public Schools released a list of 129 schools to potentially close this year. Hosts Molly Adams and Brian Babylon debate how the closings will affect children and if it’s futile to keep underpopulated, under-performing schools open. Molly and Brian hear from two thoughtful listeners who call in to share their opinions on the closings. We also hear a clip from WBEZ’s Greta Johnson, who attended a meeting about the school closings in Uptown.
