The Chicago Teachers Union is holding a historic three-day march for education justice called “Our City. Our Schools. Our Voice.” The march is in response to the district’s plan to close 54 schools in Chicago—a reckless scheme that will hurt children and destabilize neighborhoods.
The reckless policy of mass closings, mass firings, mass testing, mass privatization and mass budget cuts is destroying our public schools and hurting our children. These policies have failed to improve teaching and learning, and disregard what teachers, students and parents want for their schools.
Stand with them. Tell Mayor Rahm Emanuel to fix, not close, Chicago's public schools.
