Public school parents and students from 18 cities across the country gathered in Washington, DC this week to demand a nationwide moratorium on school closings. They argue that schools are often closed without public input and that harms students and disrupts entire communities. Critics most school closings target communities of color, which makes them a violation of their civil rights. FSRN's Jaisal Noor reports.
