About the Petition
At the same time Chicago Public Schools it is claiming it needs to close existing Chicago Public Schools because of the low number of students, CPS is putting money into building charter schools. Thirty-five (of 50) aldermen have sponsored a resolution calling for a moratorium on charter school expansion in the 2014-15 school year. We call on aldermen to sign a discharge petition so that the full City Council votes on the moratorium resolution.
