Local coalition claims school closings violate human rights

The Midwest Coalition on Human Rights sent a “letter of allegation” Tuesday to the U.N. to take a deeper look at the closing of 49 Chicago public elementary schools.The letter claims that the closures unfairly target African-American students, and also don’t guarantee kids have a safe passage to school. Susan R. Gzesh sent the letter on behalf of the Coalition and explains the details. Photo: Flick/alamosbasement
