Chicago Strike

13 Sep

Since Monday morning the 3rd largest school district has been on strike. Students of the Chicago School District nearly 350,000 of them haven’t even been in school for knowledge; some of the schools have been open for the students to get their reduced meals.  The teachers have argued for higher pay rates, better classroom conditions, and more security in their jobs and more teacher evaluation. The two sides going head to head are the Chicago Teachers Union and the Chicago School Officials. The first proposal that started the strike was that the school officials stated that roughly 6,000 teachers would lose their job in the next 24 months. The latest proposal was that even tenured teachers would need to be evaluated to even the teachers on every level.  This proposal also had modification to the way the teachers were evaluated instead of the standard of passing grades and such because of too many outside factors acting on their evaluations
