Some Chicago teachers walked informational picket lines at several schools Monday.

They want to highlight ongoing disputes with the Chicago public school system.

Teachers have been without a contract since June 30th and have been in negotiations since November 2011.

Chicago Public Schools issued a statement saying the focus should be on the students and reaching a fair agreement at the negotiating table, where they say there has been significant progress over the last few weeks.
