On Nov. 15, CTU members across the district demonstrated to CPS their ingenuity, wherewithal, and need to teach outside the confines of the Skyline curriculum with teacher-created content instead. On that day, educators taught indigenous history, elevated homelessness awareness month, and engaged newcomer students.
Topics: Contract campaign kickoff, Nov. 15 action to teach truth, not Skyline, ASPIRA TA, National School Psychology Week, Instituto rally, CPS budget meetings and more!
Our House of Delegates met tonight and discussed a number of important issues we want to summarize for you.
Topics include: Contract Kickoff, End Illinois vouchers, Skyline issues, new endorsements, committees take the lead, and more!
On Thursday, Oct. 5, the CTU hosted a webinar with our CPS counterparts to address the frustrations and concerns members have when using the Skyline curriculum. This was a new type of engagement from CPS management, but district officials still came off defensive and aloof regarding the obstacles many of us face in implementing the curriculum.
