As the clock counts down for negotiations and teachers talk about plans for a possible strike, parents and children alike are increasingly worried about what a walkout will mean for them.
Negotiations between teachers and the Chicago Public Schools were to resume at noon Saturday, in hopes of averting a Chicago teachers’ strike that could begin next week.
A teachers’ strike continues to loom in the affluent North Shore town of Lake Forest.
If Chicago Public Schools teachers go on strike, how will it affect their families?
The countdown continues for a potential teacher strike, but both sides are using words like “hopeful” and “optimistic” to describe the state of the negotiations as it stands now.
The city of Chicago is not the only municipality where a teacher strike is looming.
Chicago Public Schools parents can count on one thing – there will be school on the day after Labor Day, the first day of classes for hundreds of thousands of students.
What happens if your kids show up at school, and the teachers don’t? As the Chicago Teachers Union moved a step closer to a strike, the Chicago Board of Education was discussing what do do if teachers actually walk off the job.
A teacher strike is still a possibility next month, but on Monday morning, classes began as scheduled at about a third of the schools in the Chicago Public Schools system.
More than 90 percent of teachers in the Chicago Public Schools voted to authorize a strike this week, in a move that the Chicago Teachers Union believes will provide a leg up in negotiations starting next month.
Chicago teachers have voted to authorize a strike, setting the stage for intense contract negotiations to avoid a possible walkout in the fall.
Talks have broken down between Chicago Public Schools and the Chicago Teachers Union, and the possibility of a teacher strike is beginning to loom.
