The final goodbye at closing schools

School officially is out for the summer at about a third of Chicago Public Schools. But because of historic school closings, many won’t re-open their doors next fall. Goodbyes at those schools were particularly hard Wednesday.

WBEZ's Becky Vevea and Linda Lutton report on the last and final day at a few of those schools.
