Support striking Chicago teachers!
Faced with class sizes of 30-50 students, longer work hours and no raises, crumbling schools with temperatures over 90 degrees and no air conditioning, reduced health care benefits and up to 6,000 teachers potentially being fired in the next two years, public school teachers in Chicago went on strike today.
We need to show our support for these teachers as they fight for better schools, because the unelected Chicago Board of Education will do whatever it can to make the teachers look greedy.
Sign our petition in support of striking Chicago teachers. We will send them the signatures as they walk the picket line.
Keep fighting! We strongly support your struggle for better schools and educational justice.
