Should the striking Chicago teachers all be fired?


First they are lying, they are not striking for better schools they are striking for more benefits. increase in pay, and making it harder to terminate bad teachers. Second, according to a US Dept of Education report, 79% of Chicago 8th graders are not proficient in reading, which basically means that these teacher suck at their job. The union promises their member votes and Dems kiss their ass. The children's education is their last consideration.

    Obama has nothing to do with it. This is a State problem. :)

    The average pay of a Chicago public schools teacher is over $70,000. That's not poor compensation by any standard. Their demands are a 16% increase at a time incomes are declining, and permanent job security. Insane.

    What a load of crap. Nobody forced them to be teachers and they can leave. Teachers should be assessed for effectiveness just like any other job. If they do a crappy job then they are hurting the futures of children. Kick out the bad teachers.
