|CTU member at an Occupy Chicago rally|
Barack Obama, August 16, 2012.
The Chicago Teachers Union, which has been failing students for at least a generation, voted to authorize a strike earlier this week. The Occupy-loving CTU has asked for a thirty percent raise for its already well-paid members, on average they make $71,000 per year before benefits. Over half of the high school students at Chicago's government schools don't graduate.
The schools are facing a $700 million deficit. The unemployment rate in the Chicago area is 9.2 percent.
What planet are these union thugs on?
Chicago needs school choice, more assistance for home schoolers, and an end to teacher tenure.
