Chicago teachers extend strike; mayor plans legal action to end walkout
CHICAGO (MCT) — Mayor Rahm Emanuel said Sunday that he will go to court to force an end to the Chicago teachers strike, which begins its second week Monday.
"I will not stand by while the children of Chicago are played as pawns in an internal dispute within a union,” Emanuel said in a written statement. “This was a strike of choice and is now a delay of choice that is wrong for our children. Every day our kids are kept out of school is one more day we fail in our mission: to ensure that every child in every community has an education that matches their potential.”
