High School Students on Chicago’s West Side Protest Cuts

 

In a predominantly Mexican neighborhood on Chicago’s west side, high school students are leading a fight to “rewind to August 6” and restore staff at their school. Just before classes began, the Chicago Public Schools district sacked the principal, then fired two veteran teachers the next week. The sit-in was wildly successful and all fired personnel were reinstated.
