Chicago’s teachers union voted on Tuesday to return to remote learning amid a new surge in coronavirus cases, forcing classes to be canceled on Wednesday, district officials said.
The vote was approved by 73% of the union’s members, calling for no in-class learning until “cases substantially subside” or union leaders approve an agreement for safety protocols with the district.
The Chicago school district is the nation’s third-largest. Students in the district had just returned to classes on Monday after a two-week winter break.
“This decision was made with a heavy heart and a singular focus on student and community safety,” the union said in a statement late Tuesday.
Chicago Public Schools officials had insisted on keeping schools open for in-person classes, saying remote instruction during the pandemic has been disastrous for children’s learning and mental health.
The union argued schools didn’t have proper safety protocols in place amid the surge.https://www.foxnews.com/us/chicago-cancels-classes-union-remote-learning
