Chicago Teachers Union President Karen Lewis says she is stepping down because her battle with brain cancer has made it impossible to do her job “at my best.”
Lewis said Friday that she’s submitted her retirement papers to the Chicago Board of Education.
Lewis was diagnosed with brain cancer four years ago, has undergone chemotherapy, suffered a stroke, and underwent brain surgery recently.
