Chicago partially resumes full-time classes in schools

Chicago public schools plan to reopen face-to-face classes for some students from next week, although several teachers, who were ordered to return to classrooms to prepare classes on Monday, remained at home due to concerns about COVID-19.

Starting next week, the country’s third largest school system will give preschoolers and students with special educational needs the choice to return to class for the first time since March last year or continue their distance learning.

The Chicago Teachers’ Union protested the plans of the school authorities, explaining this for security reasons amid the pandemic, and noted that some of its members decided not to return “until the buildings are safe.”
