"We are going to continue to put pressure and put pressure on the people that are going to make the decision," said newly re-elected CTU President Karen Lewis.

Many parents were upset about the closures, and said officials have yet to give them reasons for why their school was on the list.

"There's been an assault on our public schools, public services and our public properties," said one speaker at the march. "This has gone too far."
Lewis said she believes the marches will make a difference.

Recent reports site that up to 13 schools are being considered for removal from the list after pressure form area aldermen, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

But Lewis said that's only the beginning.
"It's still 40 schools. It's entirely too many schools to try and close down," she said.
