Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

After years in which teachers have been blamed for the problems of underfunded and understaffed schools, the Chicago teachers' strike of 2012 transformed the debate. From the overwhelming strike authorization vote that overcame anti-union legislation, to repeated mass marches and protests, the Chicago Teachers Union showed teachers were determined to make their voices heard in response to corporate-driven education reform.

Lee Sustar is labor editor for Socialist Worker and SocialistWorker.org. His writings on economics and international affairs have appeared in the International Socialist Review, New Labor Forum, ZNet, CounterPunch, and other publications.

Synopsis:

How the Chicago teachers strike of 2012 electrified the city and held the line against corporate education "reform."
