The Chicago Teachers Union (CTU) has experienced a significant drop in favorability among Chicago voters, with only 37 percent holding a favorable view.

This decline is attributed to various controversies, including the CTU president enrolling her child in a private school despite criticizing school choice as racist.

The union also opposed a tax credit scholarship program and faced criticism for its handling of school reopenings during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Republicans and independents are particularly unimpressed with the CTU, now reporting net favorability levels of -52 and -20, respectively,” the report noted.

“And voters of all political backgrounds say the CTU has ‘too much influence over the City of Chicago.’ But even 40 percent of Chicago Democrats say CTU has ‘too much influence,’ with 28 percent reporting the ‘about the right amount of influence,’ and only 14 percent indicating ‘too little influence,” the report added.

Additionally, the CTU’s influence in politics and its impact on public education have come under scrutiny.

Despite its significant political spending, the CTU’s support seems to be waning, indicating a potential shift in public opinion against powerful unions.
