Teachers in Chicago Public Schools are saying they're fed up with a lack of educational funding, so many are on a one-day strike Friday, causing schools in the city to close.
Chicago Teachers Union Vice President said: "We are united. We're not taking no for an answer. We're going to fight for the schools our children deserve."
The protests — organized by the Chicago Teachers Union — put the school's budget deficit of $1.1 billion in the spotlight.
