School closing controversy in Chicago

PAA co-founder Julie Woestehoff was quoted in several newspaper stories (Chicago Tribune here, Sun-Times here) about Mayor Emanuel’s proposal to push a school closing announcement deadline back several months. Emanuel wants to close as many as 100 Chicago schools in 2013.

Unfortunately, the state legislature handed Emanuel the extension today, Julie reports.
