Public school teachers in Chicago held what they called a 'day of action' to raise awareness of education issues. It was one of 30 rallies planned for cities around the country.

The event began at City Hall. The demonstrators delivered lumps of coal, which they hoped would be brought to some Chicago aldermen.

And there were holiday cards describing needed education reforms. They made a number of demands, including an end to school closings and charter school expansion.
