CHICAGO (CBS) -- At one of the schools ordered closed by CPS – there was quiet opposition from some parents today, and some seemed resigned to what is about to happen. CBS2’s Mike Parker reports.
The kids leaving classes at Overton Elementary School in the Bronzeville neighborhood hadn’t heard the news. But their parents had. Overton will be closed, the 400 students enrolled there will be transferred in the fall to Mollison Elementary, still in Bronzeville but seven tenths of a mile away.
