Between 1983 and 1987, Chicago Public School teachers walked out four times. As current teachers wind up their second day on the picket lines, some local parents and teachers remember the strikes of the 1980s.
On September 10, 2012, some 26,000 Chicago Public Schools teachers and staff went on strike. Here are some images of teachers striking at Lloyd Elementary School, Roosevelt High School and Kelvyn Park High School in Chicago.
Last week, the Chicago Teachers Union decided they were allowed to strike, in an attempt to push Chicago Public Schools administration to negotiate with them over longer school days and pay. Comedian Ed Flynn knows you might not understand how this situation became so heated. And as a self-described "uneducated" individual, he wants to clear up any confusion.
