School Closings Chicago

Custodian Felix Bonafe finishes placing letters on a sign announcing his school's closure on Monday, June 24, 2013, outside Trumbull Elementary School in Chicago. Trumbull, which served preschoolers through eighth-graders, is one of several public schools in Chicago that closed this month in an effort to save money and consolidate resources. Bonafe says he has received a temporary janitorial job at another school, though he's not sure how long it will last. His son, who would have been an eighth-grader at Trumbull, will move to another school in the fall. "It's very sad. But what can you do?" Bonafe says. "What's done is done." (AP Photo/Martha Irvine)
