Chicago children brave risks to attend school

School closures force students to walk farther and sometimes through gang zones to get to class.

    In Chicago children are returning to classes after a round of teacher layoffs.

    One year after a teachers' strike, budget cuts have forced dozens of schools to close.

    And now many students have to walk farther and sometimes through gang zones to get to class.
