Chicago Teachers' Strike

Hosted by  • 

The Chicago school strike is a struggle between education reformers and unionized teachers. Now in its third day, the issues will look familiar in other cities, including Los Angeles. Mayor Rahm Emanuel has taken the side of school reformers against a teachers' union he accuses of being resistant to change.  We look at the national implications and the possible consequences for the November election.
