Apparently CPS and CTU are "stiill in talks." What the hell is there to talk about? The "talks" should be a simple one-word sentence: "Get to work or you're fired."

These people just want to get paid to sit around. Some of these schools don’t have a single kid proficient in math or English so it’s not like the kids are missing out on much, feel bad for the parents who rely on them to babysit their kids though.

Parenting and home life is the major driver of school results moreso than teaching. But still kids have to be in school. There's no good reason to continue remote learning. I guarantee every one of these teachers is going out and about their day using the same safety precautions that were installed 10 months ago like everyone else. There's nothing more we can do!

dtcbnd03, THANK YOU.

I started writing how my own children have been negatively affected by this remote learning!

I erased what I wrote, re-wrote something and then erased that, too!

So instead of going to share a personal story, I am just going to agree with you.

Thank you for your comment.

Lightfoot just lost ! She always talks big, then relents. By giving CTU a 48 hour 'cooling off' period , she showed that all she is, is a bluffer. She's afraid of the union and they know it. As John Cass wrote last week in the Tribune " Elect Jesse Sharkey mayor, he's in charge of the city anyway " ! Little Larry might as well start looking for another job.

She didn't lose a damn thing. She's just playing her part in the political theater, pretending they're on opposite sides of the negotiating table even though everyone knows better.

Couldn't agree more, what I meant by 'losing' is that she has lost the confidence of her supporters, the parents !

Yeah, we'll see in 2023. Even the most dismal elected officials often get re-elected with flying colors around here.

Going back to in-person classes is risky but if cps teachers already got the vaccine they should not complain. The ctu should not strike.

They are not yet getting the vaccine. It is not mid-February yet.

Chicago Public School officials said they will start providing COVID-19 vaccine to educators in mid-February.
