Hundreds of thousands of parents with children attending a Chicago Public School are scrambling to locate safe places for their kids to go today in light of the strike by unionized teachers. Yesterday was the first official day of a strike by the Chicago's Teacher's Union, the first such strike in the previous 25 years in Chicago.
Negotiations between both sides continued yesterday without a resolution, meaning the strike will last into today at the very least. The dispute still hinges largely on job security and a proposed teacher's evaluation system. The strike has impacted approximately 400-thousand students in the nation's third largest school district.
