The city of Chicago averted a teachers’ strike, but charter teachers at the city’s largest chain–UNO–may go on strike.
This is richly ironic, because one of the central goals of the charter industry is to kill teachers’ unions.
93% of charters are non-union. The Walton family of union-haters has promised to spend $1 billion on new charters in the next five years.
Juan Rangel, founder of UNO, resigned in 2013 after revelations of nepotism, conflicts of interest, etc.
Keep your eye on Chicago.
