After 25 years the city; uh, Rob Emanuel, has decided that the teachers should give up collective bargaining and subject themselves to "politicized pay" which is the antithesis of collective barganing. The teachers should also work harder under worse conditions and then be responsible for those who don't cut it: right . . .
The tax payers for their aprt are supposed to take an inferioir education for their children because of the ever present budget constraints . . . Teachers are supposed to continue to supply material for the classrooms out of their own pockets under these conditions.
Lastly, (chuckle); aren;t you the guys always yelling about how Obama must be corrupt as he is from corrupt Chicago that has corrupt policits; so by default Rob Emanuel is corrupt. But - becasue he's fighting a union, he's not corrupt, and his reasoning isn't corrupt . . .
You can dance without a lawyer
Rohm, like it or not, has to reign in the budget.
CPS is a huge part of said budget.
Guess what gets cut first?
What they're trying to do is fix a shortfall in education, while trying to save money.
With a 5.5 hour in office work day and one of the highest compensation rates in the nation, increasing the work day is fixing a problem.
You'll find no such person here.
I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
