For the first time in 25 years, teachers in Chicago are on strike this morning.
More than 26,000 teachers and support staff who work for the nation's third largest school district have walked off the job.
Late-night talks with the city failed over issues including classroom sizes, teacher evaluations, benefits and job security.
"We must do things differently in this city if we are to provide our students with the education they so rightfully deserve," said
Meantime, parents and administrators are scrambling to keep more than 400,000 students occupied during the strike.
