CPS principals learn of school budget cuts Tuesday

Once again, the Chicago Teachers Union and Chicago Public Schools are at a crossroads. If they fail to reach a deal on a new contract, there will be budget cuts to each individual school. In a scramble to keep teachers employed, principals were forced to save as much money as possible and raise funds from families of the school children. Charter schools who are under CPS look to be losing an estimated amount of $13 million. The CEO of CPS has stated that the cuts are needed in order to stay afloat to pay the faculty and other expenses. The CEO is hoping that an agreement with the Chicago Teachers Union will come soon in order to have the money to avoid laying teachers off. As Chicago Public schools try their best not to lay off teachers, it is becoming increasingly difficult to do so. The principals at each school have to manipulate their budgets as the cuts come out and will ultimately have to send teachers packing. It will be difficult for the schools to come back from cuts this extreme because of the loss in teachers and the loss in time teaching the students.
