The latest on the dispute between Chicago Public Schools and the Chicago Teachers Union.
From ABC 7 Chicago:
CHICAGO (WLS) -- There is still no deal between Chicago Public Schools and the Chicago Teachers Union as of Sunday evening as the district instructs all students to continue remote learning for Monday.
The district pushed to reopen in-person learning for some kindergarten through eighth-grade students Monday but has now delayed returning until Tuesday, according to a letter sent out to parents Sunday.
"Due to our concern that CTU leadership will continue to direct teachers to remain home, we cannot ensure adequate staffing tomorrow and all students will receive remote instruction. It is now our goal to welcome students in pre-k through 8th grade and cluster classrooms back to school on Tuesday, Feb 2," the letter stated.
You can view a bargaining update for yourself at the CTU website. My favorite quote from the windy city is when the mayor said CTU has hyper-democracy. No mayor has made that statement about the NYC teachers union
Speaking of New York, the snowstorm means all remote learning on Monday. That should be the status until the pandemic is under control.
