Aug 8 – Teachers to meet with parents in Hyde Park

Next Wednesday, August 8, at 6:30 pm, Chicago Public School teachers from the Hyde Park area will meet with parents to share information about the progress of the teachers union contract talks and the impact the decisions may have on students and schools. I will also be on hand for the discussion.

What: CPS teachers meeting with parents – all are invited!

When: Wednesday, August 8, 2012, from 6:30 to 8 pm

Where: United Church of Hyde Park, 1448 E. 53rd Street (at Blackstone)

Why: Parents have many questions about what’s happening with the teachers’ contract negotiations, and teachers want to help answer some of those questions face to face.

  • How will classrooms be affected?
  • What are some of the key issues being discussed?
  • What are the teachers hoping for from their new contract?
  • How can parents and communities help?

Join us for this important parent-teacher meeting!

(Note: UCHP is my husband’s church, and we are co-sponsoring this event to show our support for our public school teachers.)
