THE BRONX - The Department of Education voted Tuesday on whether to close underperforming schools in the Bronx.

The votes were being tallied overnight. Bronx students say they'll be the ones who ultimately suffer if the schools are shut down. The vote by the Panel for Educational Policy will decide the fate of 19 schools across the city.

Seven of those schools are in the Bronx: Christopher Columbus High School, Alfred E. Smith High School, the School for Community Research and Learning, Frederick Douglas Academy Middle School, the Global Enterprise High School, New Day Academy and the Monroe Academy for Business and Law.
