The Chicago Teachers Union has called on its 27,000 members to turn an imposed furlough day into a “fight back” day by converging on City Hall and sites throughout downtown to illustrate the call for just and progressive revenue solutions for schools.
Starting as early as 8:30 a.m. the Union, parents, students and other education justice activists will head to five target sites to illustrate the hypocrisy coming from the fifth floor of City Hall and Emanuel’s handpicked school board. The demonstration will conclude with a rally and speak out at the Thompson Center to connect the dots between Governor Bruce Rauner’s notorious “turnaround agenda” and the mayor’s refusal to fully support public schools.
