Chicago Teachers Strike
The Chicago Teachers Union is scheduled to meet on Tuesday to decide whether or not to continue striking.
The Chicago Teachers Union and Public School system have reached a tentative agreement, which may get students back in their seats by Monday morning.
Almost half of the students affected by the teachers strike in Chicago are Latino, it was reported.
Up to 26,000 teachers and support staff were expected to join existing strikers after union leaders announced that they were nowhere near coming to an amicable solution with school district officials, according to reports.
Chicago Public Schools has enacted a contingency plan that will leave 144 schools and Safe Haven locations open while teachers begin striking on Monday
