I hope the Chicago teachers never come back.
I mean, just look at waht they've produced!

If you want your children to be taught by competant professional educators, the Chicago public education system is clearly not an option.

Stop negotiating with the thugs and hire teachers based on their qualifications.

The students will be OK, if taken off the pipe of the NEA. The IB program serves the world of educators. Parent co-ops in Chicago should look into them. The teachers need to consider other opportunities.
The educational materials, grading and evaluation forms are available on line.

Better check the cost of baby sitters before you disband the unions. Whether they "teach" or not, those union operatives keep hundreds, if not thousands, of very dangerous thugs off the streets for a few hours each day.

Good news is that quality education isn't any ones focus any more in Chicago. If so, parents and voters would toss ALL the bums out of City Hall and MAN UP like the citizens did in Wisconsin.

Think things through wrote:
These Union Teachers are just radical Socialists, AKA Obama "voters"
They want others to pay for things for them, They seek a nanny state.
They make more monies then the tax payers who pay their wages.
Then they do not even teach our children, They socialistic indoctrinate our children with their own political thoughts.
My daughter came home from school last year with a brousher from the George Soros "Tides Foundation"
I went down to the school and had a go around with the Principle that this had better not happen again!
They teach NO History, NO Social studies, No World events, Basically Teachers get paid to do nothing!
All collective bargaining should be removed from these people period!
People now a days would be so much better off if they would take their children away from Public schools and just home school them.
These indoctrinators make way way too much money, End of story
Yes I agree, These so called teachers already get paid $75,000 a yr
and now they intend to make over 100K, Problem is the medium area income is only $40K, These radical teachers need a wake up call.
Fire them all and reset the program.

You should've applied yourself, instead of walking around jealous of others.

Here's another gem for ya:

The law that aimed to end collective bargaining for public workers, and made Gov. Scott Walker a household name around the nation was struck down. hahahahahahahaha
