Chicago is massively unequal when it comes to determining the distribution of resources provided to its citizens, and this practice almost exclusively falls along racial lines. The black and Latinx communities, living predominantly in the South and West sides of the city, receive far fewer benefits than the whiter, more affluent North Side.

And it’s exactly one of these benefits that activists were fighting for at City Hall earlier this week—an adequate, well-funded education.
