On Monday, CPS released the list of schools slated for “turnaround,” including Cassals and Piccolo. The West Humboldt Park Parent Network is meeting to decide what we will do about this latest round of school privatization.
Blocks Together is sponsoring a community forum regarding the current negotiations between the Chicago Teachers Union and Chicago Public Schools. In 2012 the CTU and CPS negotiations failed and the historic 2012 teachers strike happened. Come ask questions about the contract negotiations, share your concerns and offer input on your own school and community and how both sides can better serve our children during these negotiations. RSVP by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
When: Wednesday, June 10, 6-8pm
Where: Kelly Hall YMCA 824 N Hamlin Ave, Chicago
