1. Look at the area up by Ohare

Charters for all that cant afford to fight back?

The union said 88 percent of students affected by Chicago school closings or other actions in the past decade were African-American and most closed schools were in poor areas.
The union also has complained that the district has been expanding charter schools, which are public but mostly non-union, while closing neighborhood schools.
"We have all these schools that are underutilized, but they continue to open new schools," Lewis said. "There's a disconnect with that."

2. They aren't public schools; they are private schools that get public money.

There is more to being a public school than ripping off taxpayers.
