School Avoids Immediate Shutdown

The state of Illinois has picked up the tab for Chicago's Philip J. Rock Center. The school for the deaf and blind will be able to stay in operation for another month to six weeks after the payment of $300,000 in debt. The school has about a dozen resident students and more than 400 children statewide. The Center employs 40 people full time and another 20 part time.
