The city residents of Chicago are up in arms over a recent decision by its board of education.

On Wednesday, the board voted to close up to 50 public schools and shut down numerous programs.

The decision has sparked outrage, among the city’s citizens, and is leading to dozens of lawsuits and protests. Critics say that this decision could help define, for better or worse, the administration of Democratic Chicago Mayor, Rahm Emanuel.

City officials say the closings are necessary because of the falling school enrollment and is a part of their efforts to improve the city’s struggling education system.
