Do you agree with the teachers strike in Chicago?


The Chicago Teachers Union is on strike for the first time in 25 years. It is the 3rd largest school system in the US. The school board agreed on a 16% increase in salary over the next four years. So what, may you ask, are they striking about? Smaller classroom sizes and better school conditions. As a volunteer in my children's classrooms for over ten years now in the same schools I attended at their age the difference is shocking. The Chicago teachers are proving not everything is about money.

    I believe there should be a way to evaluate teachers, however, you can't expect to keep cutting funds to education and expect high quality education. Interesting statistics on classroom sizes overseas. Thanks for taking the time to comment.

    Instead of being a society of "the more education the better" we've become a society of "lets do the bare minimum for our schools." Thank you for your comments.

    Interesting point. It seems the battle for more education funding always has and probably always will be an uphill battle. Thank you for answering.
