For nearly two years, parents have picked up the slack for the Chicago Public Schools. We deserve a refund.
Thanks to the advocacy of Natasha Dunn, Tanesha Peeples and other Black parents and community advocates, the Chicago Public Schools has agreed to launch a Black Student Achievement Task Force.
I do not support a strike by the Chicago Teachers Union. No matter what the union has done, Black students have never been supported. A CTU strike will create additional barriers for them. I’m tired of people using my community as a sacrificial lamb.
