Chicago teachers strike to continue into second day- Romney: Teachers turning backs on students

Full story: Fox News

For the first time in a quarter century, Chicago teachers walked out of the classroom Monday, taking a bitter contract dispute over evaluations and job security to the streets of the nation's third-largest city -- and to a national audience -- less than a week after most schools opened for fall.

UNION THUGS!!!!!!!!!!
Normally you try to show good results before demanding more pay, and I guess with a 50% graduation rate thats good enough to demand even more of the taxpayers money. Because by democrat calculations, probably using math they learned in the chicago schools, What was at best a 50- 50 split on a floor vote to remove GOD from any further discussion amongst communists, was very cleary a 2/3 majority of people. Thats the same math they are using to tell you they are the party of fiscal discipline while bankrupting this country. Romney would be the perfect person to take the U.S. budget and make some sense of it, and the N.E.A. has already been put on notice by him. I actually hope they are still on strike when he is sworn in as the next president, so he can fire them ala Reagan and the air traffic contollers.

It is hard to believe the sheer ARROGANCE and GREED of these so-called "teachers". The are making around $30,000 more than the average Chicagoan for working 9 months out of the year.

Fire them and get some decent teachers in there who are about to kids.
