Chicago school dispute, COVID surge spotlights reopening US classrooms



In Chicago, a deadlock between the Chicago Teachers Union (CTU) and the school district over COVID-19 safety has led to canceled classes Wednesday and Thursday for most of the district’s 330,000 students. 

The CTU, which has roughly 25,000 members, voted late Tuesday to shift to remote learning until Jan. 18, or when cases fall. In response, Chicago Public Schools announced it would cancel classes Wednesday, neither offering in-person nor remote instruction. On Wednesday evening, it announced that classes would again be canceled Thursday because there aren’t enough teachers to staff classrooms.
