Perhaps two signs said it all: "On strike for better schools." "Enough is enough."

Substance News is a leading source of information on Chicago schools. For over 30 years, it's defended public education. It publishes daily articles and updates on city schools and issues related to them.

It takes dead aim at corporate news, union busting, and efforts to marginalize public education and destroy it. It's abreast of unfolding strike action and events leading to it. 

On September 10, it headlined "A new 'Chicago Symphony' is born on every street in the Second City".Massive support for teachers as the Chicago Teachers Strike of 2012 begins."

Chicago was the noisiest in its history, it said. From Howard Street up north to the city's far South Side, cars, trucks, buses, and other vehicles honked horns in solidarity against corrupt politicians and corporate predators wanting education exploited for a buck.

Thousands of teachers took to the streets. Parents, students, and concerned residents joined them. The strike "the nation's rulers said was impossible began."

"Noise, hell. That's our music," teachers said. They know what they're fighting for. Saving what's too vital to lose is key. At midnight September 10, teachers sang "solidarity forever."

"From O'Hare Airport to the Indiana border, by 7:00 a.m. the 'CTU red' lines were along every main street in the city, and the 'Honk if you support the teachers' symphony' had begun." 

"It couldn't be drowned out, no matter how craven the lies of the men and women who, by 2012, were known generally as the 'one percent.' "
