Mitt Romney on Monday called on President Obama to take a stand on the Chicago Teacher's Union strike, which is about to enter its second day and leave 400,000 students shut out of classes.
The GOP candidate took a break from a high-dollar fundraiser to criticize the president.
"Well, I think the president ought to stand up and say we that we ought to put the kids first in this country and the teacher's union goes behind," Romney said during a radio interview with conservative talk show host Hugh Hewitt. "Look I think we've gotta help the kids, help their parents, help the teachers, but the teacher's union is opposed to many of the reforms in education that we know are critical to the success of our kids."
