Strike ends, but Emanuel's campaign continues
Hal DardickThe Chicago teachers strike has ended and the kids are back in school, but Mayor Rahm Emanuel's effort to portray the outcome as a success is far from over.
With help from his well-funded political allies and the resources of the Chicago Public Schools system that he controls, Emanuel is describing the tentative contract that emerged from the seven-school-day strike as a hard-fought victory for children.
In a political-style TV and radio ad blitz launched Wednesday, Emanuel says "change is never easy" but declares the outcome "the right deal for our kids." The ads are being paid for by a nonprofit arm of a political action committee started by Wall Street hedge fund managers who believe the creation of privately run charter schools is the best avenue to reform.
