Jacqueline Vaughn

“Tough but fair, calm yet inspired, leader of a great union, a teacher with a vision.”

As leader in organized labor, Vaughn has promoted the rights of teachers in Chicago and improvement in education. As a leader and spokesperson for the CTU she advocated education reform: a better learning environment in the classroom and better instruction for students. Vaughn successfully lobbied for a one million dollar grant from the MacArthur Foundation in support of improving education in Chicago with the formation of the Quest Center. She sought higher salaries for teachers as a leader in the CTU, the American Federation of Teachers, and the Illinois Federation of Teachers.
