Dozens of angry parents, teachers, and union leaders camped out in front of the Chicago Board of Education building overnight.

They’re protesting proposed changes to under-performing schools.

The school board is meeting this morning to consider action against 20 schools.

10 are turnarounds, two closures, three consolidations and the rest are phase-outs.

Those upset about the looming changes will have a chance to be heard at today’s hearing.
