Framework in place, Chicago teachers’ strike nearing final showdown
- status A week after the strike began, the two sides plan to meet up on Sunday to discuss a framework to end the strike once and for all — but not without a good ol’ protest the day before, one energized by a legal victory in Wisconsin on Friday.
- concessions Among the biggest ones proposed in the framework: Teachers would have performance reviews weighted by roughly 30 percent of testing scores — less than the city wanted, but still adding extra pressure to teachers to boost standardized test scores. Also, the city conceded on pay increases. source
