The Chicago Public Schools have released a contingency plan to make sure students are accommodated in the event of a teachers strike on Monday. The plan includes 144 "host schools" or "contingency centers" as well as several faith-based organizations, mostly churches.
Chicago Public Schools teachers may be on strike by Monday, leaving many students, student-athletes, and school officials wondering what they'll do to keep up with the demands of school life, which don't wait for a teachers strike to end.
The Chicago Teachers Union and Mayor Rahm Emanuel appear to be working toward ironing out differences in order to avoid a strike. There's still a long way to go if a strike is to be avoided, but so far, things don't look terrible. The issue of a longer day, which was part of recent compromises, will keep coming up, though, so this is a preview of things to come.
