It's Official: Chicago teachers to strike after talks fail

by Tammy Webber,
Associated Press


CHICAGO (AP)-- City officials vowed to keep hundreds of thousands of students safe when striking teachers hit the picket lines Monday and school district and teachers union leaders resumed negotiations on a contract that appeared close to being resolved over the weekend before the union announced both sides were too far apart to prevent the district's first strike in 25 years.

The walkout in the nation's third-largest school district posed a tricky test for Mayor Rahm Emanuel and his city, as parents and school officials begin the task of trying to ensure nearly 400,000 students are kept safe.

School officials said they will open more than 140 schools between 8:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. so children can eat lunch and breakfast in a district where many students receive free meals.

The teachers are FIGHTING the evaluation process put forth by Obama and his Secretary of Education, Arne Duncan! Don't ya love it?

Arne was the Superintendent of Schools in the district where Obama's children lived.

HOWEVER, Obama's children DID NOT attend the nearby public schools they were assigned to. They attended a CHARTER SCHOOL, as Rahm Emanuel's children do.

It's OK for the President and Mayor to send their kids to charter or private schools, but Obama took away that privilege from parents in Washington DC-a pit of a school system.

CHOICE for ALL parents! YOU decide what school your children attend, be it public, private, parochial, virtual, charter.

Funds should FOllOW your child to the school of YOUR choice.

Our school sytem is failing! Our own government states that and yet they hem and haw over allowing parents the CHOICE of selecting a school OUR children get educated in.

THough Obama was for the everyday folks. No way when he blocks the ability of parents to make a CHOICE!

Rich, powerful people shouldn't get the advantages-EVERYBODY should.

It's all about the money, no matter what they say. Teachers were offered a 4% raise, they want an 18% raise. This in a city on the verge of bankruptcy, where the school system graduates about half the kids and sits well toward the bottom of the list for achievement. Sure, at $70,000 a year on average they deserve an 18% raise and the security of knowing that no matter how awful they are at teaching they will have that cushie job and wonderful pension waiting for them if they just ride out the 20 years or so needed. Greed knows no bounds with unions, especially the Teachers Unions.

Are public union teachers 25th in negotiating and striking too? Or is it only in math and science?
That's what I thought.

Are they the fancier 25th in the world in math and science schools? They have pools and pool rooms? Tennis courts? Big football/basketball program? I bet they are #1 in basketball. No doubt.

Had Kenya stuck out it's colonialism deal with Britain as Singapore had, would they be as successful as Singapore now instead of a festering cesspool because of Mau Mau Rebellion believers like Barack Obama, his father, and his father's father, Onyango?.

It is nauseating to see the broadcasts of grossly obese, orca-sized, teachers whining that this is all about the children. HA! It's never been about the children to this greedy buffoons.

Rahm should pull a Ronald Reagan -- fire all of them! There are plenty of normal sized college graduates who could reform that messed up school system and inspire healthy lives for those who want to improve themselves. Fast track certify them as teachers in two weeks!

Doctors protesting their PENSIONS!

THIS is what is awaiting the American citizenry if Obama Care is implemented

Strikes ARE THE FUTURE in medicine!

When was the last time doctors went on strike in America?

They are paid well, but will have to form unions and 'associations' to advocate for better pay,pensions.

It IS the future!

Now that's a good idea! They should be happy to have a job, almost 400,000 job seekers have just quit in disgust, I'll bet any one of them could be a better teacher than what these guys are.
