Indy Politics talks with IPS Superintendent Lewis Ferebee about the likelihood that district will have to close three high schools next year due to declining student enrollment.

Ferebee says the district had 20,000 high school students 20 years ago, that number has dwindled down to 5,000 and by closing three high schools the district could save about $4 million annually.

Public meetings will be held starting next week.
