With salaries that low why would any educated person go into teaching? Especially in cities like Chicago and Philly whee classrooms are chaotic and violent and several teachers have been seriously hurt by 'students.' Even worse there are no real consequences for violent behavior and teachers are not allowed to defend themselves and the kids know it!!
Average salary in the USA is $47,000 So Chicago Teacher make close to twice that and they are in the top 25% of the USA as far as income is concerned. And that only working 9 month a year.

But, in fairness to the Unions, most americans don't pay dues to buy democrats who will screw everyone and everything else for their benefit.

Liberals created a permanent underclass of subhumans with generational welfare. NYC has a 25% graduation rate because you give illiterate teens food stamps to spawn future felons by the half dozen. The incarceration rate exceeds the graduation rate. If you get arrested in my family, you are ostracized. In some neighborhoods, it's more common than having a job.

Now the only answer is to turn half our public schools into prisons.

wtg libs!

All this violent Anti American Muslim crap happening now in Africa and the Near East should be good for Obama. Islamics like him better. They know he will "work" with them and not get all emotional about America or Americans interests.
