I feel strangely sure that they're going to work it out and everyone's going to go back to their regular school schedule tomorrow, but I could be wrong. Even if they come to agreement, it will take a while to figure out the details and get a grasp of what happens next.

    Joel Weisman: Strike or no Strike?

    Chuck Goudie from WLS News Team and No strike! Rahm
    Emanuel won’t let it happen.

    Mick Dumke from The Reader: They’ll cut a deal.

    Kristen Mcqueary from Chicago Tribune: They’ll cut a deal…they’ll get better raises.

    Lou Canellis of WFLD Sports: No strike! There’s no way janitors, custodians and security guards are gunna deal with kids on September 10, Monday.

    A quick note to Chuck Goudie: Rahm made his wet bed and now he has to sleep in it. Also, Mr. Goudie… cut back on the salt.

    A note to Mick Dumke: CTU isn’t trying to ‘cut’ deals.

    A note to Kristen Mcqueary: teachers care less about raises and more about working/learning conditions – try to get that into your pretty yet vapid little head.

    A note to Lou Canellis: janitors, custodians and security guards are not at the negotiating table.

  • Bye Bye Brizard.

    Bye Bye Rahm

  • Yes, Mr. Vitale--principals go to the CTU for support on the REACH process. That is how bad things are with 125 leadership. Why in the world would 125 leadership listen to principals? Why Mr. Vitale?
