Several Chicago Public School teachers will visit churches across the city this coming weekend as an addendum to the annual "Teachers In The Pulpit" program, which is sponsored by Arise Chicago and the Chicago Federation of Labor and places more than 100 labor leaders in more than 100 religious services.

“We will be out Labor Day weekend to strengthen the ties between the cornerstones of our communities – the churches and the schools," said CTU president Karen Lewis. "We want congregants to know that a good classroom environment for students and a good working environment for teachers looks exactly the same. We are grateful for the support of community leaders who, with our teachers, want to bring joy and respect back into the classroom.”
