How can your countries teachers be over paid?Just look at what teachers in America have to face,government changing this and changing that.Children turning up for school tooled up or armed up looking for trouble,and if that is not all you have nutters with semi automatics wandering into class rooms shooting children to pieces-GIVE US ALL A BREAK AND GIVE IT A REST.

yea they don't want to have the world to what a failure the Chicago dysfunctional ,corrupt union mismanaged public school system is.

testing would show the over paid teachers are just not doing the job, The parents are not doing the job they need to do keeping kids in school helping with homework seeing that assignments are completed, getting tutors to provide remedial instructions for children needing assistance.

Teacher of Chicago are just as lame a police in Chicago dysfunctional inept over paid under preforming failures.

hey do you see a pattern here in Chicago??
