Newsviews: CPS CEO Forrest Claypool

CHICAGO (WLS) -- There's a lot of uncertainty right now for Chicago Public Schools, the teachers and ultimately the students. There have been layoffs and more could be coming.

Teachers don't have a contract and rejected an offer this past week. The district responded saying it would cut school budgets and teachers would be left to pay more of their pension costs.
