Some Chicago Public Schools (CPS) students are organizing a district-wide walkout on Friday in protest of the district’s decision to return to in-person instruction amid a citywide surge in COVID-19 cases.
Students are hoping that the walkout brings awareness to the need for remote learning options. Since CPS schools initially returned to in-person classes at the start of the 2021-2022 school year, students and teachers have frequently had to pivot between in-person and virtual instruction, as outbreaks within individual school buildings have occurred.
