CPS: More than 50K students absent during ‘Day Without Immigrants’ protests
CHICAGO — Last week’s “Day Without An Immigrant” was also a day without a lot of Chicago Public School students.
CPS says more than 50,000 pupils stayed home on the day of nationwide protest against the Trump administration’s immigration policies.
Nearly a quarter of Chicago’s Hispanic students did not go the school on Thursday.
More than 100 schools had attendance rates that day which were below 80 percent of what they were a year earlier.
