The Chicago Teachers Union (CTU) has presented numerous demands in its latest round of negotiations for a new contract with the public school system.

Though the specifics of the union’s demands have not been officially disclosed, a leaked document cited by Fox News “sheds light on the eye-popping demands.”

Among the demands are funds allocated to repurpose unused school buildings into housing for illegal aliens, along with providing each migrant student with $2,000 to support various services.

Furthermore, the proposed contract stipulates that all counselors, clinicians, social workers, and school psychologists must undergo annual training on LGBTQ+ issues to ensure they are “queer competent” as part of their job requirements.

Additionally, each school is required to have at least one gender-neutral bathroom.

These requests amount to $50 billion and include a 9% salary increase, comprehensive coverage for abortion expenses, additional resources for migrant support and facilities, as well as various LGBT-related requirements.

As noted by Fox News, the total tax receipts for the state of Illinois last year amounted to $50.7 billion.

From Fox News:

The union’s demands have not been made public but a leaked document sheds light on the eye-popping demands.

Union President Stacy Davis Gates’ audacious plan calls for members to bank at least 9% wage increases each year through fiscal year 2028.

The average salary of a teacher in Chicago Public Schools is $93,182, according to research by the Illinois Policy Institute, a conservative nonprofit think tank. Therefore, the average teacher’s pay will increase by half to $144,620 in the 2027-2028 school year, it says.

That figure would equate to more than double the median household income in Chicago, according to Census Bureau statistics.

Despite the ongoing struggles of Chicago public schools and the declining academic standards across Illinois, the Chicago Teachers Union (CTU) is pushing its outrageous list of demands.

A recent report card issued by the Illinois State Board of Education paints a grim picture. Shockingly, in 30 schools statewide, not a single student is performing at grade level in reading, with 22 of these schools located in Chicago. Similarly, in 53 schools, no student is meeting math proficiency standards, with 33 of them located in Chicago.

It’s worth nothing that Stacy Davis-Gates, President of the Chicago Teachers Union (CTU), has chosen to enroll one of her children in a private Catholic high school in Chicago.

Nevertheless, the call for increased funding persists for a system that appears to be failing its students.
