The Chicago teachers strike entered its second week Monday, with many people still wondering what it’s all about.  The average salary for teachers in Chicago is $76,000, and the new contract offered annual pay raises.

So what are the striking teachers looking for?

Terrific video by the Heritage Foundation and Ben Howe explains…

Why are teachers striking in Chicago? What are teachers unions fighting for? Is it for the students? For the schools? For the union? 

Listen to the union officials themselves. You might be surprised.

Nay, you should be surprised.
