Teachers Claim Layoffs Were Racially Motivated

Three Chicago teachers have filed a lawsuit against their district. The teachers claim the district targeted schools with high percentages of African American teachers for layoffs. The disctrict claims the layoffs were part of a program aimed at turning around the district. The teachers claim that the number of African Americans teaching in the district has been cut in half by a turnaround program instigated by administrators. Last February, the district fired 347 tenured teachers as part of its attempt to improve the public education in the district. The three plaintiffs have sought class action status for their case.
