School students in Chicago are calling for a school boycott next Wednesday in protest against the planned closure of over 50 schools in the town. The students who say they are 'under-resourced, over-testd and fed up' have already presented a petition to the Mayor and held rallies callinng for an end to the closures.

This is the latest action in Chicago as parents, communities and the teachers keep up their against the mayor's cutting and privatisation agenda.
