CHICAGO, ILLINOIS - OCTOBER 17: Chicago public school teachers and their supporters picket outside of Lane Tech College Prep high school on October 17, 2019 in Chicago, Illinois. About 25,000 Chicago school teachers went on strike today after the Chicago Teachers Union (CTU) failed to reach a contract agreement with the city. Chicago has the third largest public school system in the nation.

More than 1,200 Polk County teachers are expected to strike today to attend the “Take on Tallahassee” rally.

At first the Commissioner of Education and the Florida Department of Education threatened to fire all Polk County teachers and even fine them $20,000 if they attended the strike. Now, everyone has changed their mind and they’ve decided teachers will not be punished for supporting it.
