CTU president fears more teacher layoffs on the way

Karen Lewis, president of the Chicago Teachers Union, warned on Tuesday that the 855 pink slips issued by the Chicago Public Schools last week are, perhaps, “just the tip of the iceberg” for CPS layoffs.

The downsizing announced on Friday includes 420 teachers represented by CTU, who taught at the 50 schools scheduled to close when the current school year ends. Lewis said at a City Club of Chicago luncheon on Tuesday that any future layoffs would more likely be the result of district-wide budget troubles than further ramifications from school shut downs.
