Chicago (AP) - Chicago teachers suspended a seven-day strike in, a move that will send approximately 350,000 students back to school.
The union's House of Delegates voted Tuesday to suspend the strike after learning details of a tentative contract agreement.
A proposed settlement was presented over the weekend.
Sticking points included teacher evaluations and job security, provisions at the core of a debate about the future of public education across the nation.
The union delayed its vote to give teachers more time to assess the contract they'll vote on in the coming weeks.
Mayor Rahm Emanuel had pushed for a quick resolution.
