Chicago Teachers Union President admits sending son to private school

  • Chicago Teachers Union President Stacy Davis Gates, who has spoken out against private education and school choice in the past, enrolled her eldest son in a private Catholic school. This decision has sparked controversy and accusations of hypocrisy.
  • Davis Gates defended her choice by stating that options for Black students and communities on Chicago's South and West Sides are limited, and that her son's desire to play soccer was a factor in the decision. She acknowledged the remaining inequities in public schools and criticized the role of wealthy individuals in shaping education policy.
  • Critics argue that Davis Gates' enrollment of her son in a private school contradicts her opposition to school choice and highlights the need for high-quality neighborhood public schools. The Chicago Teachers Union has been actively fighting for equitable resources and against school closings.
