Chicago teachers were out protesting on Tuesday.

Jun. 16, 2011

A day after the Chicago Board of Education unanimously agreed it could not afford raises for Chicago Public Schools teachers, Eight Forty-Eight talks with board President David Vitale. Then cast members from Theo Ubique’s production of Some Enchanted Evening: The Songs of Rogers and Hammerstein sing tunes from the show and talk with Eight Forty-Eight’s Jason Marck. And comedian Steve Mazan talks about his years'-long quest to perform on the Late Show with David Letterman, despite being diagnosed with terminal cancer.
