Sri Lankan educators’ safety committee supports Chicago teachers fight against union sellout | #students | #parents


The Teacher-Student-Parent Safety Committee (TSPCS) in Sri Lanka stands in complete solidarity with the Chicago educators’ struggle for virtual schooling to save the lives of teachers and students from the worsening coronavirus pandemic.

Teachers in Chicago, the third largest school district in the United States, are fighting against a murderous agreement between the Chicago Teachers Union (CTU) and Chicago Public Schools (CPS) to reopen schools amid an unprecedented surge in COVID-19 infections.

The TSPSC welcomes this courageous initiative to save the lives of children, educators, school workers and the entire population. It marks a major fightback against the capitalist classes around the globe who place profits above human lives.
