Students bring desks to 606 Trail, demand solutions to CPS budget woes
Aug 10, 2017 5:58 PM - Dozens of Chicago Public School students, parents and other supporters gathered Thursday morning on the 606 trail -- and they brought their own chairs. Desks, actually. The protest by the Logan Square Neighborhood Association was intended to call attention to both Gov. Bruce Rauner's veto of a school funding solution in Springfield, as well to protest Mayor Rahm Emanuel's treatment of CPS. The district has borrowed hundreds of millions of dollars -- and laid off hundreds of people -- to deal with ongoing budget woes.
