For many years now our teachers have not been receiving the pay and the benefits that they deserve. Teachers are being asked to work more hours without an increase in pay! We should not just stand by and let our teachers be stomped on by our policy makers. We, as parents, need to let our policymakers know that education needs to be on top of their lists. It is time to stop this injustice toward the teachers, who are helping us, as parents, raise our children for a better future! By signing this petition you are telling Chicago’s policy makers to give the teachers what they deserve. They deserve a hefty raise and better benefits after the many years that they have gone without. Our teachers need these things so they can continue their hard work and dedication and ensure a better education for our children in the future. Our teachers deserve the best because they are the best! Please sign this petition so that our teachers know we as parents are behind them all the way!! Thank you for your support!
