Parents union to place stewards in schools


Parents United for Responsible Education will unveil new strategies for a citywide parents union at its annual meeting tonight, including plans for a union “steward” to be placed in every Chicago public school. The Chicago Parents Union, according to PURE, will help solidify parental rights at a time when local school councils are under fire. Stewards will be trained by union staff to act as first-option parent advocates for sorting out issues at the school level. The annual meeting takes place at 6:30pm, Nov. 17, at PURE headquarters, 100 S. Morgan St.
