Its absurd the illiteracy rates in HS grads and they want more money?
Yeah, they are probably making too much already. Fire all of them. Who needs educated kids anyway? There are private schools. Send your kids there.
Oh, you do not have kids in the Chicago school system, do you? Yep, the teachers make way too much. May those kids be the ones to care for your health
in the future. I am sure you will not need anyone that can read to keep you alive ever.
Might want to edcuate yourself.........in chicago where these people are on strike , they turned down a 16 percent increase to their wage..........a
wage that is higher then anywhere else in the US, with the median wage for a teacher there before benefits is 70k+ a year.......I repeat...70 thousand
dollars a year, BEFORE benefits....are you kidding me?
Youll say "oh well but its a tough job" , except they arent doing their job look at the deplorable education stats coming out of their schools, some
of the lowest in the entire country, and they want MORE? Its despicable what these teachers are doing.....
They arent in it for the kids, they arent trying to help, they are greedy and devoted to their own interests, what teacher who wants to help and loves
what she does, would REFUSE to teach kids, and help them and instead go on strike? Not to mention the boggling number of them involved, they arent
worried about the kids, plain and simple....
Like the above poster said..........FIRE THEM ALL! Look at the average wage in America right now, its no where close to that, with so many people out
of jobs and struggling to find ANYTHING, and these people strike because they arent making enough?! They need people there who do what they love
educating our youth,and who will do their damn job.....
Teachers use to teach because they wanted to help people, because they cared about the future of our country, because they had moral fiber, and
heart..........not for a new car, or longer paid vacations....
These people are scum..........
Next time you decide to make a wise crack.........how bout doing some research
