Public Relations During Strike

We examine the public relations and conflict communication between the Chicago Teachers Union and the Chicago Public Schools during the strike on Chicago Tonight at 7:00 pm.

On September 14, the Chicago Teachers Union's House of Delegates did not vote to end the strike. That same day, CTU released a video called, “The Black & White Truth,” featuring parents, students and teachers all discussing the need for greater neighborhood school resources. Watch it below.

During the ongoing battle, an advertisement created by Put Students 1st and Education Reform Now aired, urging CTU to end its strike. Watch the video below.
