It is the last day of class for more than two dozen Chicago public schools that are closing their doors for the last time.
Wednesday was the last day of class for about a third of the city's schools. Chicago Public Schools spokeswoman Becky Carroll says that among those are 28 of the 50 schools and programs that the board of education voted last month to close. Classes for the rest of the city's schools will end next week.
At Lafayette Elementary School on the city's West Side, fifth-grader Amy Romero said goodbye to the only elementary school she's ever attended. She says she is upset about her school closing and worried about how she will fit in at her new school.
