Chicago’s school reopening plan is hanging in limbo after the city’s teachers’ union filed an injunction that could delay a return to in-person learning.
Public school students in Chicago, the nation’s third-largest district, have been learning remotely since March.
“It’s a really tense time for everyone involved,” Monica Davey, the Chicago bureau chief for The Times, told us.
“You have teachers and families and — most of all — students left in limbo.”The Chicago Tribune, The Chicago Sun-Times and local cable networks have doggedly covered this raging fight for months.
The basic breakdown: The union says the district isn’t bargaining in good faith to create a safe plan; the district says the union hasn’t proposed concrete suggestions.
