This article sort of puts these proposed school closings into perspective although it doesn't mention that. The Red Line will be closed down from May to October and right now parents are concerned about how their children will be able to at the very least travel from school to home. I wonder if this article gives parents even little ease.
The CTA said 98,000 students at 370 CPS schools will be affected by the Red Line construction, including elementary and secondary schools, spokeswoman Tammy Chase said. Students from 12 Catholic schools also take the Red Line to and from school.
Outreach to students began in April, when an alernative service flier was sent out along with report cards, Chase said. And robocalls to homes of CPS students began May 1. Another round of robocalls will begin Friday.
