Teachers strike heads into second day
Joel Hood, Noreen S. Ahmed-Ullah and Hal DardickTalks between Chicago's school board and the city's striking teachers failed to produce an agreement Monday, leaving more than 350,000 children locked out of the classroom for a second day.
As parents faced another day of figuring out how to care for their children without school, thousands of teachers in red T-shirts flooded the Loop on Monday afternoon to show solidarity for the strike, filling streets and stopping traffic.
"There is a lot of anger," said Vicki Turbov, an English teacher at North-Grand High School in Humboldt Park who has two children attending district high schools. "This is about big stakes, the future of education in our country. This is not about a 2 percent increase."
