After months of negotiations, the Chicago Teachers Union and Chicago Public Schools have failed to come to an agreement. SOS Supports the Chicago Teachers Union and the Children http://saveourschoolsmarch.com/get-in...... In Chicago,, support for education and educators is strong. Texas parents too are concerned and stand with Chicago teachers, In Canada, New York, and yes, even on the streets of Chicago, Moms, Dad, and the children, students who feel the pain their teachers have taken to the streets to say, "I trust Educators with my children's education...Not politicians and not corporations."

Little ones and older persons understand that a fair contract means much more than most might think. The Chicago Teachers Union, parents and the children who educators have chosen to serve, want Americans countrywide to know, there's a great deal of work to do to create the schools our students deserve. That includes:

REDUCE CLASS SIZE -- The mayor has threatened to put as many as 55 children in one classroom!
PROVIDE SOCIAL SERVICES CHILDREN NEED -- The school board refuses to hire more social workers, nurses and other clinicians at a time when youth violence is skyrocketing.
INVEST IN ALL SCHOOLS -- The school board denies funds to schools in low-income neighborhoods. Our students need equal access to high-quality learning opportunities in every neighborhood school!
SUPPORT TEACHERS AS PROFESSIONALS -- The school board so far refuses to give your school's teachers, paraprofessionals, and others a fair contract.
STOP CHARTER EXPANSIONS, turn-arounds, and school closings.
Tell Chicago's mayor and the Chicago Board of Education to make our students a priority. They must invest in high quality school facilities, staff, and resources for all students. Join us in our fight to win a fair contract and to move our schools forward.
