In this episode we interview Chicago elementary teacher Andrea Parker. Andrea is also a host of the Chicago Teachers Union Speaks! Podcast. She discusses the context for their current round of negotiations and their strike and what it is that they are fighting for to transform public education in Chicago.
For a fulsome overview of the changes the Chicago Teachers are seeking see this abridged version of a fact-finder report produced as part of their negotiations with the local government of Chicago.

The report was prepared by the labour relations body of the local government but provides an idea of the specific demands being made. It was produced in August of 2019 prior to the current strike.
