A rally calling for greater access to charter schools drew parents, students and faculty.

They gathered today at the University of Illinois at Chicago for a charter schools day of action.

The demonstrators said that parents should have a greater choice for enrolling their children in charter schools.

Speakers said that charter schools offer quality education and are so popular that 12.000 students can't be enrolled, and instead are put on waiting lists.
