TARA STANDS IN SOLIDARITY WITH CHICAGO TEACHERS!
TARA stands in solidarity with the Chicago Teachers Union as they hit the picket lines for a strike. One of the biggest issues: no movement by Chicago schools to prevent excessively large class sizes.
Chicago Mayor Lightfoot promised to do more for Chicago kids and schools like fully staffing schools with nurses, librarians and counselors, creating safe and welcoming environments and bringing down class sizes at every grade level. Now, the mayor needs to put these promises in writing. The Chicago Teacher’s Union wants a contract that’s about justice, equity and fairness for their schools.
