Chicago teachers strike updates: Lewis, others, end talks for night

•, Jodi Cohen

CTU President Karen Lewis and other principal negotiators finished up for the evening about 9:45 p.m.

"Today we made some progress,” said Lewis this evening. “We are trying to move the issues off the table. We still have a lot of work to do obviously. And we got a lot of work done today."

"We pushed off (the table) looking at what the day actually looks like for people for elementary school, middle school and high school,” Lewis said. "Those articles that the board originally just completely struck out of their original proposals - they are now back in our contract. We worked on that today."
Of about 400,000 Chicago Public Schools students, about 18,000 took advantage of "Children First" programs at 144 schools throughout the city on the first day of the strike, according to the school system.
