Chicago teachers won’t return to in-person classes without more vaccination availability
Teachers in Chicago public schools voted against returning to in-person classes, the Chicago Teachers Union announced.
Monday was supposed to mark the first day of school for a large number of the teachers, while students were expected to be back in the classroom Feb. 1, according to NBC Chicago. The union said in a statement that 71 percent of teachers voted to continue remote instruction as they wait for vaccinations to become available.
The teachers union said its members “chose safety” as it spars with the district about how and when to return to the classroom.
