“I don’t know if CPS is aware of, understands that the individuals they’re hurting probably the most are our youngsters,” Avila stated by means of a Spanish language interpreter Thursday. “We’ve tried many issues to get our instructor reinstated, and CPS shouldn’t be listening to us. Though the (classroom assistants) are doing the perfect they will, they’re not a instructor, and I believe two weeks with out a instructor will set (the scholars) again. For CPS telling us they’re doing this reopening for our college students, shouldn’t be true. CPS shouldn’t be solely punishing teachers, however additionally it is punishing our college students.”
