    Save Senn! Stop the Military Takeover Of Our Community High School

    The Chicago Public Schools plan to install a Naval Academy in Senn High School next year. The military school would occupy an entire wing of Senn's building, taking half of the school's science labs, a third of its classrooms, and displacing several crucial programs such as:

    * The Junior Academy - one of the city's first and most successful schools within a school.

    * The International Baccalaureate (IB) program - which, in 2004, awarded more diplomas than any school in the city after Lincoln Park.

    * Senn's nationally recognized Service Learning program - which has helped students perform more than 70,000 volunteer hours in this community in the past 5 years!

    * A multi-lingual TESOL program that helps kids from 70 different countries learn English... helping to make Senn Chicago's most diverse school.

    Tuesday, December 14th
    4:30pm at Federal Plaza

    The Chicago Board of Education will vote on whether to install a naval academy at Senn High School on December 15th. We will demonstrate on the eve of this vote!

    Tuesday, Dec. 14th 4:30 PM at Federal Plaza (Dearborn and Adams).
