Chicago - Thousands of teachers in Chicago are heading back to the picket lines for a second day.
The teachers' union there has been unable to reach a settlement with the school district over contracts.
More than 350,000 students have nowhere to go for classes, which also means they can’t take advantage of free breakfast and lunches.
For some parents, that creates a problem about where to send their kids.
Some don't have a choice and have to stay home instead. “I told them I couldn't make it in because today,” said one mom. “I didn't have child care. So I couldn't do my job 'cause I had nowhere to send my child today."
Negotiations between the union and district will resume later Tuesday morning.
