A teacher's strike has families shuffling in Chicago today. Labor negotiations between the Chicago teachers union and school officials fell through late last night, affecting 400,000 students across nearly 700 schools in the nation’s third largest public school system.
One person who was present during the failed negotiations with union members was David Vitale, President of Chicago Public Board of Ed.
Earlier this morning, Mr. Vitale appeared on “Starting Point” to weigh in on the current teachers strike in his city.
“The strike revolves around two issues,” said Vitale. “One with respect to recall and job security for our teachers and the implementation of a new evaluation system.”
Public Board of Education president went on to say that both sides will be meeting later this morning.
