Mayor Emanuel announced this morning that he will immediately be closing all campuses of the University of Chicago (ranked #4 by US News and World Report) and Northwestern University (#12) in a gesture of fairness towards the devastating closures of CPS schools announced last week. "If I'm screwing over one group, it's only right to screw over all of them," he said in a breaking press conference at City Hall. Several charter universities are looking into buying NU and U of C's now-empty campuses.
