Math Errors and Schools Closings

As a newcomer to Chicago (with a young child), I have been fascinated by the whole public school closing dust-up.  I have been fascinated by the decision to close so many schools.  And then there is the sheer amount of money that is involved.  Now throw that whole situation against the backdrop of a city that is influx following the structural changes in housing that have occurred recently.
