Karen Lewis of the Chicago Teachers Union is angry.
There’s a gross injustice being perpetuated in Illinois’ public schools, and the CTU isn’t going to take it anymore. In fact, the powerful teachers union is considering a strike in hopes that it would create so much public pressure that the Powers That Be have no choice but to correct this outrageous injustice.
Like many Illinois citizens, the CTU has seen reports that three out of four state high school graduates are not ready for college. And the union’s response has been, well … the CTU hasn’t really said anything about it.
