Thousands rally against closure of 5 Bronx schoolsPosted: Updated:
Thousands of students, parents and teachers turned out in Brooklyn tonight to rally against the proposed closure of five Bronx schools.
The Department of Education says the schools are consistently low-performing and should be shut down. Those against the closures argue the schools need help and can be fixed.
A decision on the school closures is expected to be reached by early Friday morning.
