This week Dion (@Dionsmusica) talks about the upcoming Chicago Teachers Strike. Dion is a former educator, a former Chicago Public Schools teacher, and a former Chicago Teachers Union member, having taught 4 years in a public school setting, 2 of those in Chicago.
We didn't think it was fair to ask a teacher or a parent to put themselves in a compromising position, so Dion felt comfortable talking the strike, interspersing his own personal knowledge, being a part of the 2012 Chicago Public Schools strike.
In his own special way, Dion weaves his way through a variety of stories about his education experience, as well as talking about the importance of the sticking points of the CTU demands list. Definitely check out this unique perspective on Chicago schools and education.
They come up in the conversation, so be sure to check out The Civic Lab.
