What to do with all those empty schools

CPS has 42 empty school buildings in many areas already struggling with blight. The mayor has appointed a committee to determine the fate of those structures. But CPS has already been in the business of selling unused school buildings – some successfully in high-income areas and others still in the bid process that are in struggling communities. Community members see an opening for community centers. WBEZ reporter Natalie Moore is in studio to talk to us about the inventory CPS has and try to get to the vision of the committee that is tasked with finding new uses for empty buildings. And we want to hear from you. What do you think CPS should do with its empty schools? (Photo: Flickr/artistmac)
