A Chicago Teacher's Union leader is under fire for pushing for remote schooling as she vacations in the Caribbean.

Sarah Chambers, who is on the CTU's executive board and serves as an area vice president, has been claiming it is not safe for Chicago public schools to reopen next Monday amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

But that hasn't stopped her from jetting off on holiday to Puerto Rico - an island that has clocked more than 110,000 cases of the coronavirus.

Chambers reportedly took to Instagram on Thursday to share a snap that showed her reclining poolside, accompanied by a caption which read: 'We have the whole pool to ourselves. Then, we are going to old San Juan to get some yummy seafood mofongo.'

The snaps subsequently began being shared on social media, with many calling Chambers a 'hypocrite' for taking a tropical holiday whilst claiming it was 'unsafe' to return to the classroom.
