Chicago schools’ union walkout sent the parents of 350,000 students hunting for child care for a third straight day yesterday. Yanira Robles, mother of five, wasn’t one of them.
“I feel lucky that they are in a school that is not on strike,” said Robles, 37, whose children attend Esmeralda Santiago Charter School in the Humboldt Park neighborhood. “It was a relief. I want them to be learning.”
