Big Teachers are high paid taxpayer supported Government agents who are striking against us innocent little children. I hope the Government puts them back to "work". Our taxpayer supported moms and dads DEMAND it. US KIDS NEED OUR TAXPAYER FUNDED BREAKFAST, LUNCH AND DINNER!

Not every citizen in Chi is Anti Union. In spite of all reason or common sense, there are still at least two dozen parents in Chicago who back the Unions demands for mediocraty in public education over their own children's right to a first rate quality public school education. Some self idenify as Sadists. But most merely as Democrats.

I agree. Big Teachers tell us little kids that we should eat the disgusting foul tasting unsalted slop the Government "approves" for us to eat. Yet, our hard working taxpaying moms and dads are forced to pay the high salaries that enables Big Teacher Government agents to eat "high on the hog".*(so to speak)*.

Most that I saw ARE high on hog. Maybe this strike will give those I refer to the most excercise it appears they've had in decades.

But let's get the f real..... eighty percent of eighth graders cannot read or do math. There is NO excuse for that and it' a reflection of piss poor parenting and piss poor 'teaching'. Got a news flash for them.

When this economy breaks, and it WILL, they will be on all fours wishing this day back.

If only the Democratic Party hadn't formed the Devils Partnership with the Public Sect Unions in the pitiful Blue States. But, alas no one cares in the Blue States. Their votes prove their have a civic death wish.

Highest paid teachers in America should be ashamed and treated the same way the air traffic controllers were treated by Reagan. You either get your asses back to work tomorrow or your fired. I'd love to work 9 months a year and make 74 thousand a year,by the looks of those teachers they are feed pretty good.They want 19% increase in pay well how about 19% decrease until you learn to educate the children.These kids are suffering which proves that the teachers and especially the union/commies could care less about these kids. And for that teacher that said this was a civil rights issue,I wish i could have stuck my hand through the TV and yanked her tongue out. Shame on all you union thugs and you spoiled rotten teachers.

The sheer ignorance of the CTU is an embarassment to all teachers. But then again, the nation's worst school district employing these clowns is no surprise.

The highest paid Teachers in America don't want to be held to any standards whatsoever?

Unionizing Public Employees was an act of Civic Suicide for America.

Dump Obama in November. Send a message that over paying public employee unions and getting awful out comes isn't plenty good enough for your family...even in the broken joke Blue States.

Another thing with this. Are these the people who are going to promote and prevent obesity in this country? Or are they part of the problem. A child can learn immense amounts just by pobservation over the years. Much of early learning is nothing but pure intrajection by repeating others behavior. How many normal-appearing adults do these kids see in a day?
