No deal yet in the Chicago teachers strike – CNN's Kyung Lah reports

More than 350,000 Chicago students have another unscheduled day off today, with Union leaders opting to continue the strike despite a tentative deal to end the stand off.

Both sides met over the weekend and came to a tentative contract agreement, but delegates from the Chicago Teachers Union say they found several elements of the contract problematic, specifically job security. Union delegates plan to reconvene to discuss the negotiations Tuesday afternoon, meaning that classes will not be in session for at least two more days.
