CTU heads to Springfield to rally for funding
CHICAGO — The Chicago Teacher’s Union is taking its grievances to state lawmakers.
Members loaded buses early Wednesday morning and headed for Springfield to lobby for a series of measures aimed at pumping more money into the school system.
CTU wants lawmakers to move on a millionaire tax to fund public education, as well as new funding formulas for schools.
Union officials are already threatening to strike over a contract dispute with Chicago Public Schools.
