CHICAGO (AP) - Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is turning to the courts to try to put an end to a teachers strike that's entering its second week.
The Chicago Teachers Union and school leaders seemed headed toward a resolution at the end of last week. But on Sunday, the teachers said they were uncomfortable with the tentative contract offer. They say they need more time to go over it before ending the standoff that's kept 350,000 students in the nation's third-largest school district out of class.
Emanuel says he's instructed city attorneys to seek a court order forcing teachers back into the classroom.
The strike is expected to last at least through Tuesday. It's left parents scrambling to make alternative child care arrangements.
Two main issues are teacher evaluations and job security.
