Strike deadline near, dire finances complicate Chicago school talks
Chicago's public schools and its teachers' union make the final push to avert a looming strike with its success hanging on each side's willingness to accept unappetizing concessions.

Unions want extra money for teachers from special economic development districts — a controversial proposal given their uneven, hard to predict revenue.
