Chicago cancels public school classes ahead of teachers’ strike

Chicago Public Schools has canceled classes for some 361,000 students on Thursday after the teachers’ union said it will push ahead with a strike over stalled labor negotiations. The Chicago Teachers Union and Chicago Public Schools have been locked in a months-long contract dispute over higher pay, caps on class size and other issues.

Teacher in Texas here. We dont have mandatory teacher's unions here. I also have to say that while I agree that teachers should be paid more, I don't think it's right to take it out on the student's education by striking.

Hehehe perhaps they shouldn't... The Public School System as of right now is.. well DOG SHIT! Fix the system and allow for more education platforms to better distribute the student population and adhere them closer to their chosen preferable styles of learning.

How much do they currently get in benefits? How much is base pay?
