Chicago Teachers Union Claims Racism Regarding Teacher Layoffs By EmploymentCrossing  |  Dated: 12-29-2012

The Chicago Board of Education has been called racist and is being sued for firing a number of African-American teachers in 2011. The lawsuit, filed by the Chicago Teachers Union Local, the American Federation of Teachers, AFL-CIO, and three teachers, claims that African-American teachers were fired at a higher rate compared to white teachers.
