Teachers, Students to Return Back to School in Chicago After Reaching Deal

Teachers in Chicago will returned to school today after the Chicago Teachers Union House of Delegates voted to end the teacher work action over Covid-19 mitigation measures. According to Mayor Lori Lightfoot, the union said last night that it expects to open polls today for rank-and-file members to vote on the agreement and that students will return to classes tomorrow. More than 340,000 students in the school system missed four days of classes since teachers voted to teach remotely citing unsafe conditions and inadequate staffing in the midst of the omicron surge.
