Gas cut off at contested Whittier field house

October 5, 2010 (CHICAGO)

A handful of parents have been staging a sit-in at the Whittier Elementary School field house in the Pilsen community for nearly three weeks. They want the district to convert the building into a library.

Chicago Public Schools officials say the structure is unsound. They have asked parents to vacate the premises and work with the district on a solution.
