Chicago Public Schools have been fully remote all year. The mayor wants to unilaterally reopen the buildings while COVID-19 continues out of control. The Chicago Teachers Union isn't having any of it. They are demanding some of what NYC's UFT already has in terms of safety protocols but they are going two steps further. They want the COVID-19 positivity rate to be under 3% before they open and they are willing to put up a real fight to achieve their goals. They are going to protest in a safe way with a car caravan today.
