Chicago Teacher Strike: Day 3, No Results
8 months ago
Teachers have lowered expectations for agreement.
The Chicago teacher strike has entered day three, with a new meeting between the union and the school board scheduled for Wednesday.
The teachers have lowered their expectations and demands, but are also accusing the school board of making things more difficult by presenting another proposal that union president Karen Lewis calls "lunacy."
School custodians are also threatening to walk off the job to support teachers in their fight.
As far as the school children are concerned, the school district announced that they will have 147 drop-off centers where students can get free breakfast and a morning of supervision. They will be open six hours a day.
