CHICAGO - EAGNEWs.org is reporting first-hand from the Chicago teachers strike. While CTU teachers are paid an average of $74,000 per year, 71 percent of the public schools' 8th graders score below the most basic science level. CTU teachers say they are striking because the 16 percent pay raise offered by the school board is not enough. They are also demanding less professional accountability and more wage benefits.
