Well-read Red: Chicago Teachers Strike

program date: 
Mon, 09/17/2012

 With a brief introduction by Iven Hale, Well-read Red Frann Michel offers an array of analyses about the real stakes of the Chicago Teacher's Strike. She presents arguments that defend the teachers union as fighting a rank-and-file organized campaign against neoliberal education reform. She cites numerous examples of how both the Democrats as well as the Republicans are behind the gutting of public education that Chicago teachers are fighting against, and how in the process these teachers are breathing life into the labor movement as one aimed at a better society and not just a better contract.
