School Will Stay Open Afterall

Illinois'only public school for the deaf and blind won't close afterall. The Philip J. Rock Center and School in Glen Ellyn had warned that it would soon have to close its doors. There was no money to pay employees after April 15th. The state owed it $1.7 million in payments. But by the end of the week, state officials had come up with $1.3 million - enough to keep the school going at least until July. State education officials had looked at moving the center's 14 students to other facilities.
