CHICAGO (CBS) — Classes were canceled again Tuesday for students at two high schools in northwest suburban McHenry, as striking teachers continue to walk the picket line.
More than 150 teachers at McHenry Community High School District have been on strike since Thursday.
A negotiating session after Monday’s school board meeting ended with no reported progress toward ending the strike.
The two sides remain hung up on teacher salaries and health insurance payments.
At Monday’s school board meeting, parents lined up to speak on both sides.
“You’re asking for more, and honestly, as a taxpayer at the bottom of the level, I don’t have it to give to you,” one woman said.
