The Board of Education of the City of Chicago has filed a motion for a temporary restraining order blocking the teacher strike by the Chicago Teachers Union.  The Board argues that the strike is illegal under the terms of the Illinois Educational Labor Relations Act, and that it creates a public safety hazard by blocking access to meals for children, exposing children to an increased risk of violence, and denying critical special education services.
