Occupy Saucedo & Telpochcalli!

Occupation of Saucedo and Telpochcalli!
By Jim Vail

Saucedo delegate and prize-fighting activist Sarah Chambers is against relocating Spry H.S. into her school.

The brave warriors at Saucedo and Telpochcalli, who first took on the city to opt out of the crazy Parcc tests, are back fighting the forced relocation of Spry High School into their building.

The parents, students and teachers are occupying their building and demanding that the Chicago Public Schools honor the wishes of the community.

They pointed out that their schools are already at 80% capacity Saucedo and 90% capacity Telpochcalli.

So where can they put all these students?  They would have to displace and disrupt the special education and bilingual classes, among others.

And, Saucedo delegate Sarah Chambers pointed out to the TV news reporters today, all this to save $90,000.

She said CPS can eliminate one position in the central office at twice the cost to come up with that kind of money. Not to mention the fact that they rent out buildings to charter schools for $1 a year.

This is a fight to watch!  Go Little Village community. We support you!
