The head of the Chicago Teachers Union who has described school choice as "the choice of racists" sends her son to a private school.
Stacy Davis Gates, who was elected as president of the Chicago Teachers Union in 2022, has long derided school choice—a wide range of policies that make it easier for parents to send their children to schools other than their local public school, often by getting back some of the government funding that would have followed their child to public school—as inherently racist.
"*School choice* was actually the choice of racists," Gates tweeted in August 2022. "It was created to avoid integrating schools with Black children. Now it's the civil rights struggle of our generation?"
