CBS Chicago: Urban Prep Charter Academy teachers enters 2nd day of strike


[VIDEO] I don't know how many families who read this blog are affected by this, however, there is a strike at an charter school in Englewood. Urban Prep is known as an all-male charter school with locations in Englewood, Bronzeville and the West Side. There were three years of negotiation and one sticking point is pay, teachers at Urban Prep are paid less than those hired by Chicago Public Schools.

Another sticking point is special education that teachers don't stay at Urban Prep long enough to meet the needs of special education students and lack those resources.
