Teachers' union in Chicago reaches agreement to return to classrooms
Officials in Chicago and the city's teachers' union have reached an agreement, and teachers will back to their classrooms on Tuesday.
After nearly a week of discussions, the Chicago Public Schools (CPS) and the Chicago Teachers Union (CTU) reached an agreement.
Last Thursday, CTU members voted to end in-person instruction. CPS turned down an attempt to make a quick transition to digital classrooms, and as a result, the school was canceled for 4 days.
Teachers and other school personnel must come back to work on Tuesday, and in-person classes will resume the next day, according to the revised agreement.
