Chicago teachers strike

Here we go again on this merry-go-round.

What tweaked me about the story was that they would keep the schools open so KIDS COULD GET SOMETHING TO EAT.  And that they would have a place to go.  I am NOT for any child going hungry.  However, those that "qualify" for "free" school food are usually also getting food stamps.  So no excuse for not feeding them.  Last I checked, schools are not responsible for child care either.

I guess they need a lot more money because they have to have pregnancy care, child care, and all sorts of social services.  I graduated a Chicago Public School in a class of 700 with ONE pregnancy.  The issues are not money, they are social.  Maybe class size is relevant.  I am so sick of hearing about my home town like this.

We are both of the same generation.  My class had two … but it was only after the diploma's were in hand did the word come out.  Same with you?

I don't think teachers should be allowed to strike. They have all summer to work this crap out. They want to shorten instructional time by 30 minutes in the morning. Why? These kids need all the instructional time they can get.

Instruction does not equate to learning.  Learning is something you WANT to do.  The question is … how much WANT do the chickago thugs have?

If kids don't have back up support and pushing at home, a lot of them don't make the attempt.

I spent most every school night working with my daughter due to issues at school.  If education isn't a priority with "parents," it probably won't be to the kids.

The timing is INTENTIONAL.  They just get the school year started, and then they strike.  It is all about interrupting the school year.

I suppose they want more "preparation" time.  I admire teaching as a profession, but they get a LOT of time off compared to other professions.  Yes, the kids need the time.

The mayor has stated their demands would cost over $2 billion dollars.  She says they do NOT have the money.  I know this is not a lie, because the whole city and state is in a financial MESS due to liberal spending, etc.

I can't remember.  But the one I found out about was around graduation.  She was pregnant with twins and then married the father.  Even with a few more if we didn't know wouldn't come close to today.  And this was in Chicago.

Teachers Unions and Pension Funds are destroying the taxpayer.  Do away with the unions and bring those pension funds back down to earth. 

I went to an all male private military school.  No issues with pregnancy on that end.    Grin Grin Grin

Public employees should not be allowed to join unions. And pension funds should be private with the employees paying into it with matching funds up to a point from the public largess.
