The walkout by teachers in Chicago demanding a return to remote learning is over. We hope:
A proposal for Chicago Public Schools to resume in-person classes Wednesday has been approved by the Chicago Teachers Union’s House of Delegates.https://t.co/ksk91uNaiq

What exactly did these clowns accomplish?
5 days of lost learning. For nothing. Eliminate spring break. https://t.co/m7g91zYcOd

We don’t have exact details yet, but there’s still a chance the final agreement between the city and the union forces kids back online. From the Chicago Tribune:
In addition to a return to in-person teaching Wednesday, the plan the House of Delegates approved will set conditions by which an individual school would return to remote learning, determined by the rate of staff absences and students in quarantine or isolation, as well as whether it’s during a period of high community COVID-19 transmission, where a lower threshold would apply.
In-person classes are set to resume on Wednesday:
UPDATE: CPS and the Chicago Teachers Union have reached an agreement. All staff will be reporting to schools tomorrow, Tuesday, January 11, and in-person classes will resume for all CPS students on Wednesday, January 12. Please review this letter for more information. pic.twitter.com/kF7Cq4681k

Members still have to vote on the new proposal:
The Chicago Teachers Union House of Delegates has voted tonight to suspend the Union's remote work action while rank-and-file membership votes on the proposed agreement.
