FILE - In this Sept. 18, 2012 file photo, Tennille Evans, a member of the Chicago Teachers Union’s House of Delegates, celebrates after the delegates voted to suspend the teachers’ seven-day strike against the school district in Chicago. The hard part now comes for Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel who must figure out how to pay for it all, and won’t rule out school closings and a property tax increase, both of which would be hugely unpopular.
