CHICAGO -- Chicago's children will get another day off from school tomorrow after the teachers union decided to continue its weeklong strike. Union delegates declined to formally vote on a proposed contract settlement today. Union president Karen Lewis says teachers want the opportunity to continue to discuss the offer that's on the table. She says teachers "feel rushed."
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel says he will seek a court order to end a teachers strike set to enter its second week. Emanuel says the strike is illegal under state law. The mayor says "This was a strike of choice and is now a delay of choice that is wrong for our children." The union says it needs more time to meet with its members to discuss a tentative deal.
