"The School Closure Playbook" is a video essay about Chicago's education policies, and how they have served as a prototype for a broader neoliberal campaign against public schools. This "playbook" leverages a sense of crisis to convince the public that there is no alternative but shuttering traditional public schools and opening charters, often after centralizing power in the hands of a single mayor or governor.
