Rahm Emanuel: Teachers Strike "Not Necessary"

Mayor Rahm Emanuel said today he didn't want to "set expectations" about whether Chicago teachers will strike next week, but he did say a walkout is "not necessary."

“I believe if everybody stays at the table and works through the issues (we'll continue to) make good and steady progress,” Emanuel said. "Our kids should stay in the classroom which is where they’re going to learn and everyday they’re not there a day has been taken away from them and it’s not necessary.”
