Chicago parents prepare for possible teachers strike
Dahleen Glanton and Ellen Jean HirstSecond-grader David Nesbitt can't debate the pros and cons of a longer school day or explain exactly why his teachers are demanding more pay. But he does know what it means to go on strike.
His mother has made sure of that.
Every night, Julie Parson Nesbitt sits at her son's bedside and reads him the story of 17-year-old Annie Shapiro, who led 40,000 clothing workers on strike in Chicago in 1910.
"It's a big book that's over his head, so I read a little bit and try to explain it in a simpler way," Nesbitt said of "Annie Shapiro and the Clothing Workers' Strike," which she checked out from a public library last week. "It personalizes the strike story in Chicago, and he likes looking at the pictures."
