On today's edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson and Ben Domenech are joined by Joy Pullmann to discuss the strike by Chicago public school teachers, the struggle within the Democratic party to reform education, and what this strike means for the parents of the 300,000 kids who are not in school.
We're brought to you by Stephen Clouse and Associates and The Heritage Foundation's Morning Bell. If you'd like to email us, you can do so at bjackson[at]coffeeandmarkets.com. We hope you enjoy the show.
