After Student Protest, Chicago Schools Return to Normal

In March, Chicago announced it would close 54 public schools. About 200 students protested, angry about the city’s plans. “Closing school has a negative effect on students and their families,” said Brian Stirgis, a 17-year-old senior at Paul Robeson High School who was a coordinator of the student protest.
