Labor Beat: School Closing Hearings – NTA vs Real Estate Values

A hearing on January 9, 2018 — organized by Chicago Public Schools — ‘debated’ the threatened closing of the National Teachers Academy grade school.

NTA Parents and teachers (above) voice their strong opposition and expose this mockery of a democratic process.
