Are the budget woes of Chicago Public Schools over?
The Daily Line’s Mike Fourcher joins Justin to recap a busy couple of days of local politics including Mayor Emanuel’s 2017 budget proposal and the tentative agreement between CPS and CTU that avoided a teachers strike. How did this deal get done? Who is the winner and who is the loser? Or, are we all winners? Mike fills us in on all the details. Mike also breaks down Mayor Emanuel’s budget that is “free of an immediate pension crisis, free of the black cloud of insolvency threatening the retirements of city employees and the financial future of Chicago.”
