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.
