In a new report issued by UIC's Great Cities Institute, researchers investigated several factors -- physical, student, geographic, political and neighborhood demographics -- that led to the closure of public schools in Chicago between 2000 and 2013. The findings reveal that building utilization and student performance were predictors of these closures, but so was the race of students in each school. Report co-author Rachel Weber, UIC professor of urban planning and policy and a faculty fellow at the institute, can comment.
