Teachers head into school year without a contract

This morning, many Chicago teachers were assigning cubby holes and passing out textbooks, going over syllabi and leading kids in the pledge of allegiance. WBEZ education reporter Linda Lutton visited to three Chicago schools Friday and talked to teachers to get a sense of their ambitions, concerns, and hopes. Then, for more on what teachers are facing this school year, we turned to Jesse Sharkey, vice president of the Chicago Teachers Union. (WBEZ/Linda Lutton)
