UPDATE: Chicago Teachers Vote To Suspend Strike, Resume Classes

The Chicago Teachers Union president says the city's students will be back in class Wednesday after delegates voted overwhelmingly to suspend a seven-day teachers strike. 


Karen Lewis spoke during a Tuesday evening news conference after delegates met to consider a tentative contract proposal. The teachers walked out last week over issues including how they are evaluated and job security. Some 350, ooo students were affected.
