I tried hard to word a decent headline but the Chicago Public Schools (CPS) makes it impossible. The teachers will not return to the classroom with the students in January. So the cash-strapped city will hire supervisors to be in classes and at the school with the students. This is because the Chicago Teachers Union (CTU) refuses to get back to work.

The Chicago Teachers Union (CTU) already proved they don't care about kids because reopening the Chicago Public Schools (CPS) is based on "sexism, racism, and misogyny." The CTU filed an injunction, asking "the Illinois Educational Labor Relations Board to halt the return to in-person learning until terms can be 'determined by good-faith collective bargaining instead of by executive fiat.'" The CTU also said, "a strike isn't out of the question."

This week, students and outsiders at Northwestern University in Chicago staged an anti-police protest that left the campus covered in graffiti. The rhetoric included messages like "more dead pigs" and worse. To his credit, Northwestern President Morton Schapiro strongly denounced the protests, and called out the left for thinking they're more important than others on campus.

A federal district court ruled that the Dakota Access Pipeline, the oil route from North Dakota to Illinois that is a crucial component to the Trump administration's plans for energy, must be shut down pending an environmental review, and be emptied of oil by Aug. 5.
In a 24-page order, U.S. District Judge James Boasberg in Washington, D.C., wrote that he was “mindful of the disruption” that shutting down the pipeline would cause, but that it must be done within 30 days. Pipeline owner Energy Transfer plans to ask a court to halt the order and will seek an expedited appeal, spokeswoman Vicki Granado said.
