Chicago Teachers’ Struggle For Justice

With contract negotiations in full swing between the Chicago Teachers Union and the City, Mel Ferrand, chairwoman of the Chicago Teachers Union’s LGBT Rights Committee, joins the Gay Liberation Network’s Roger Fraser, himself a retired school teacher and union activist.

Ferrand and Fraser discuss the right of LGBT teachers to free of harassment, and the various myths peddled by the Rahm Emanuel administration against the teachers. With a possible strike looming in the next several weeks, Ferrand explains what’s at stake for teachers, students and parents.
