Chicago Teachers Approve Contract
Teachers in Chicago have a new contract after voting to accept a deal that ended a bitter seven-day strike that left 350,000 students out of the classrooms. It's a three-year deal which includes pay increases and a new evaluation system.
In the first strike in Chicago in 25 years, teachers stormed off the job last month and engaged in a weeklong nasty war of words with mayor Rahm Emanuel. That fight sparked a national debate over education reform.
