Chicago Teachers Union president Karen Lewis told reporters Tuesday night not to expect a deal on the second day of a strike.

"Don't expect a deal today," said Lewis. "There has not been as much movement as I would have hoped. Talks continue."

Chicago public school teachers are in their second day of strikes as negotiations continue over a contract dispute. Thousands of teachers, nurses and social workers who are part of the CTU gathered at the Chicago Public Schools headquarters around 2:30 p.m. Tuesday and marched through the Loop.
