  • Chicago, IL (1888PressRelease) May 04, 2014 - Chicagoan C.A.U.S.E. Chicago Alliance Of Urban Schools' Educators Founding President Ms. Rosita Chatonda ask "Please Keep Black Teachers Employed And Reverse All Dismissals.

    Rosita futher states that from Massachusetts to Michigan, from New York to New Orleans, thousands upon thousands of Black teachers are being "structured out" of the Education field all across this land. For instance, 6,000 Black teachers lost their jobs in the Chicago Public Schools between 2010 and 2013. In 3 years asked Rosita can 6,000 educators become incompetent? In addition to the 7,000 post Katrina New Orleans teachers, thousands more voiceless, dedicated, effective educators of African descent have been disenfranchised nationwide. Would 6,000 educators decide to retire all at once in Chicago? Massive termination of African-American teachers since the 1990s should be unacceptable. We at C.A.U.S.E.would like to see the following investigations:
    How E3s, unsatisfactory ratings or Corrective Actions are executed;

    Possible repercussions on African American teachers who advocate against the expulsions and suspensions of Black students;

    On pseudo evaluations performed on teachers who care a lot to get involved and help students get the resources they need;

    That government look into practices of attorneys and school districts who engage in behaviors that are not in compliance with the law, i.e., bring unsubstantiated charges against teachers; require forced to resign tenured teachers and long term staff to sign papers to remain silent and not to file lawsuits;

    Lastly, we are asking why thousands of teachers who pay union dues over several decades are unable to get due process by our collective bargaining units. In other words, the unions have not protected us.

    The decimation of Black teachers for the last 60 years since Brown vs. Board of Education decision is an issue that had remained silent for too long. We would like to see an investigation done, policies and laws created regarding unfair dismissals, and a Presidential Executive Order ordering the overturn of all "suspicious" dismissals of tenured teachers and long term staff that occurred in the past fifteen years.
