Seriously? Yeah, seriously

Chicago-based human rights advocates have senta letter to the United Nations' Office of the High Commissioner on Human Rights asking the international body to monitor Chicago's school closings.

The "letter of allegation" sent Tuesday evening to Geneva, Switzerland, asks U.N. officials to investigate whether the closing of 49 Chicago elementary schools violates children's human rights.
