(VIDEO) The LA Teachers’ Strike Isn’t About Class Size. It’s About Money And Charter Schools.

In this Saturday, Dec. 15, 2018 photo, thousands of teachers rally against the nation's second-largest school district in downtown Los Angeles. A massive teachers strike in Los Angeles is all but inevitable starting Monday, Jan. 14, 2019, after the two sides did not renew negotiations over the weekend. The teachers' union rejected a new offer Friday from the LA Unified School District after hours of talks. United Teachers Los Angeles called the district proposal "woefully inadequate." With no new talks scheduled, pickets are likely to begin at 7 a.m. as teachers push for a raise and lower class sizes. (AP Photo/Damian Dovarganes)

The LA Teachers’ strike continues. The union says it is about funding and class size, but that’s not the whole story.

Romy Drucker, Co-Founder and CEO of 74, says the costly LA strike is about the ongoing battle over charter schools.

On Friday’s show, Drucker sat down with Tom to discuss how charter schools are challenging the status quo and why teachers’ unions see them as such a threat.
