Class Canceled: Chicago Teachers Union Votes In Favor Of Remote-Learning At Odds With City Demanding Educators Appear In Person


On Tuesday afternoon, the Chicago Teachers’ Union (CTU) voted to move K-12 education back to virtual learning, in the wake of rising COVID-19 cases.

In response to the union vote, the city’s education department canceled class on Wednesday, without pay for the teachers, and asked for the CTU to come to the table to work out a compromise. Now, the city is working to convince teachers to come back to the classroom so that students can receive a proper education. Signs indicate a strike could be coming, as it’s unlikely a mutual decision will be reached by Thursday morning.

Following the vote Tuesday afternoon, Chicago’s Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) issued a series of tweets aimed toward parents, reassuring them their children would be returned to in-person learning.
