Film about the Chicago Teacher's Strike in September 2012 - Along with the support of their students and their families, the teachers were fighting for better school resources and a 4% wage increase.

The short film about the strike casts a spotlight on the public school system in Chicago: A student states that there are 55 pupils to a class, a teacher tells us that her Economics textbook is 12 years old. A school nurse talks about how she is responsible for 3 schools and 27,000 children. In a school with 18,000 students, there is only one social worker etc.
