CHICAGO — The publicteachers’ strike that has halt-ed classwork and upset fam-ily routines across Chicagoground into a third day todaywith some movement reportedby union and school boardnegotiators but no sign of animminent deal.Union leaders said theywill meet today morning toreview a new, comprehensiveproposal from school boardnegotiators that addresses allthe issues still on the table.The board has requested eithera written response or a com-prehensive counterproposalfrom the union.But the teachers Tuesdaywere lowering expectationsfor an agreement, buoyed byenergetic rallies in which evenparents inconvenienced by thestrike waved placards in sup-port. Other unions were join-ing in, with school custodianrepresentatives saying theirmembers will walk off the jobthis week as well.Board President DavidVitale, the lead schools nego-tiator, said early in the day thata deal could be reached, butunion President Karen Lewisand her colleagues emergedfrom the talks accusing theboard of having dug in itsheels with its new proposal.Among the biggest remainingissues are a new teacher eval-uation system and a processfor deciding which laid-off teachers can be rehired.“There’s been — let’s putit this way — centimeters (of progress) and we’re still kilo-meters apart,” said Lewis, whoearlier stated it was “lunacy”to think the issues could bewrapped up quickly.School officials also tooksteps to prepare for a longhaul, despite persistent asser-tions by Mayor Rahm Emanueland others that the strike was“unnecessary” and could beresolved quickly. The schooldistrict in the country’s thirdlargest city announced that,beginning Thursday, the 147drop-off centers where stu-dents can get free breakfastand a morning of supervisionwill be open six hours a dayrather than four.Vitale said late Tuesdaythat the two sides had heldextensive discussions on theteacher evaluation system.But he questioned the serious-ness of the union negotiators,noting that they had encour-aged the protesting teachersto enjoy themselves at a rallyduring the day.As the teachers walk thepicket lines, they have been joined by parents who arescrambling to find a place forchildren to pass the time orfor baby sitters. Mothers andfathers — some with their kidsin tow — are marching withthe teachers. Other parents arehonking their encouragementfrom cars or planting yardsigns that announce their sup-port in English and Spanish.Unions are still hallowedorganizations in much of Chicago, and the teachersunion holds a special placeof honor in many householdswhere children often grow upto join the same police, fire-fighter or trade unions as theirparents and grandparents.“I’m going to stay strong,behind the teachers,” saidthe Rev. Michael Grant, who joined educators on the picketline Tuesday. “My son sayshe’s proud; ‘You are support-ing my teacher.”’But one question loom-ing over the contract talks iswhether parents will continueto stand behind teachers if students are left idle for daysor weeks. That ticking clockcould instill a sense of urgencyin the ongoing negotiations.Mary Bryan, the grand-mother of two students atShoop Academy on the city’sfar South Side, supports theteachers because she see “thefrustration, the overwork theyhave.” A protracted labor bat-tle, she acknowledged, would“test the support” of manyfamilies.Parents “should stick withthem, but they might demandteachers go back to work,”Bryan added.To win friends, the unionhas engaged in something of a publicity campaign, tellingparents repeatedly about prob-lems with schools and the bar-riers that have made it moredifficult to serve their kids.They cite classrooms that arestifling hot without air condi-tioning, important books thatare unavailable and insuffi-cient supplies of the basics,such as toilet paper.“They’ve been keepingme informed about that formonths and months,” Grantsaid.
