Successful Strikes Video Is Terrific

How wonderful that CORE has produced this video so that the history of the Chicago Teachers Union strikes is not lost. This should be a very good vehicle for educating the teachers who have never experienced a strike since our last one was in 1987. I was in this video, but I extend my congratulations to all the others who in any way participated in producing this excellent result.
