Strike for What? Ask Teachers.
Many teachers walked out on their students Monday in Chicago. The Chicago school district is the third largest school district in the US. The Mayor of Chicago, Rahm Emanuel and the Secretary of Educationand Arne Duncan, are being challenged by public school teachers that have gone on strike recently. Mayor Emanuel says, "This is not a strike I wanted, it was a strike of choice… it's unnecessary, it's avoidable and it's wrong."
