Teachers have been on strike in Waukegan IL, forcing kids to be out of school and residents to become restless. (Update 10/30: Strike is over.)
The teachers' strike in Dixon, Ill., now in its 9th day, has forced school officials, all the way up to the Assessment Division at the Illinois State Board of Education, to make special accommodations to give students every chance to complete state testing.
In case you're wondering about the legality of teachers' strikes, they are legal in Illinois and 12 other states. But that's all, primarily because most state legislatures have put education on par with police and fire protection as essential services provided by government.
