The Chicago Teachers Union has struck a deal with the school district that may give teachers more control and enhance their public image. The teachers union lost many bargaining rights in 1995 when the state put the city's schools under mayoral control. The issue of the teachers' bargaining rights has also become a hot topic in the gubernatorial contest between Republican Jim Ryan and Democrat Rod Blagojevich.

Dorothy Shipps, assistant professor of education and former director of the Chicago Consortium on School Research, said, ""This agreement is a very positive move. You are never going to get serious change, better outcomes for students, unless you have the teachers on board."


The article, entitled "Chicago Union, Board Seek Right to Negotiate" appeared in the September 18th edition of Edweek.
