school closing

Chicago: The government has decided to minimize the number of public elementary schools to mere 48, owing to the reduction of 1 billion in the budget. The shutdown in the city is the newest addition to closures all around the country. Sources suggest that tightening of the budgets by the districts and a marginal downfall of the school going children are the primary reason for this major step.


When the scenario in Chicago is analysed it is quite evident that, the schools that are closed down are majorly in the areas where there is an enormous number of African American population who had suffered the backlash of recession which resulted in many of them losing their jobs and were forced to move out .The students are currently on their summer break, so by the time they return, when the school reopens, a new allotment would be done.
