I am Black History

I’m scorned, adorned, and often forewarned / That the way I perform, is because I am a unicorn / A Black Man in a teacher’s uniform. Far from the norm. / A rarity in a sea of disparity, trying to seek clarity / But at times, my work is viewed as charity.

Your Union is Here to Help

The Schools Chicago’s Students Deserve 2.0

This 2018 update to CTU’s 2012 report, The Schools Chicago’s Students Deserve provides a counter-narrative to the corporate agenda on education. SCSD 2.0 highlights the many racist inequities that have continued, or in some cases worsened, since 2012. CTU has a track record of fighting for reforms to change these realities, which is why Chicagoans continue to trust the CTU more than the Board of Education, more than Mayor Emanuel and more than any “reformer” backed by billionaires and corporate foundations.
