Federal Money for Education

On August 10,  2010, Congress passed the Edujobs bill, sending $104 million dollars to Chicago to rehire, recall and retain teachers. To date, approximately $30 million remains unspent. Hundreds of illegally fired teachers are still without jobs while students attend overcrowded classes.  By signature below, we demand that the Chicago Board of Education spend the remaining Edujobs funds now and return experienced teachers to their students.

    4 years ago Comments: Our children deserve the best educations they can get, which does not happen in overcrowded classrooms, or without the crucial programs needed to put the opportunities offered to Chicago Public School children on par with other systems. Some of our best teachers were fired from the system and need to be rehired. This is necessary, not only to enhance the education of our students, but for the sake of justice and restoration of the morale of the employees. In these very difficult economic times, not only those teachers, but their families and society in general suffer from their unemployment.
