Three Chicago Public Schools’ teachers and the union have sued the school district alleging racial discrimination. Donald L. Garrett Jr., Robert Green and Vivonell Brown Jr., and the Chicago Teachers Union said the district’s process for “turnaround” schools is racially discriminatory because it targets West and South side campuses with a higher percentage of African-American teachers and staff.
The lawsuit asks for class-action status, saying the district discriminates against African-American teachers and paraprofessionals when it selects schools for “turnaround” based on performance, “resulting in the termination of all employees of the schools.” Source
