The [Monday] Papers

"As the Chicago teachers strike enters its eighth day on Monday, both the Chicago Teachers Union and the city appear to be digging in, each side blaming the other for a failure to land a deal," WBEZ reports.

Are both sides digging in, or is one side dug in and, in the mayor's words, refusing to take yes for an answer? Just asking!

*

"The walkout has now surpassed the last strike in 2012, which spanned seven school days."

So the CTU is further away from Lightfoot's sympathetic offer than it was from Rahm's hostile offer. 🤔

*

"There was some good news on Sunday. Chicago Public Schools support staff, covering 7,500 custodians, security guards, bus aides and classroom assistants, reached a tentative contract deal. However, they aren't expected to return to work until the CTU reaches a deal."

*

You decide.

Gov Likes Likeness
"Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker is endorsing legislation that would allow college athletes in the state to make money from endorsements," AP reports.

"During a Sunday interview on WGN Radio, Pritzker said college athletes deserve the same opportunity as everyone else to earn compensation based on the use of their name and their image and likeness.

"Democratic state Rep. Emanuel Welch of Hillside has introduced legislation that would put Illinois in line with California."

*

California has "approved a bill that allows college athletes to earn money through athletic endorsements starting in 2023," as noted in a previous post, "What If College Athletes Got Paid? 3 Questions Answered."
