A protest against the proposed closure of 25 public schools in New York City ended with the arrest of 24 demonstrators, including two city councilmen. Some of the several hundred protesters, many of them students, blamed the city for the schools' ongoing struggles.

Two votes determining the fate of the schools are expected to take place today and Thursday.
