CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Hundreds of people marched along Michigan Avenue Monday to protest a school closings plan.

The Chicago Teachers Union and Stand Up Chicago organized the rally. They marched to the Hyatt Hotel where they accused Chicago Board of Education member Penny Prizker of using special set-aside funds for a new hotel.

They are demanding she return the $5.5 million in tiff money, but the Hyatt denies receiving any city money.
