    Your first assertion is inaccurate. (you're talking about full packages, not pay) I said that you can read my source on pay in the thread.

    The rest of your stuff is just unsubstantiated nonsense as well.

    Perhaps that is the nub of the problem. Maybe they should be.

    I'm sure in Soviet Russia lots of people said, "Grocery stores are not a business and shouldn't be treated as such." And then they wondered why the food sucked and there were always bread lines.

    In a way you are right but not for the reasons you probably believe

    if a private school spends more than it takes in-it goes bankrupt unless it raises its revenue through tuition or gifts

    when a public school spends more than it takes in, the government gives it more money or takes it over

    So, paying more and more money to the teachers will reduce that $700 million shortfall?

    I'd be interested to learn where you acquired your expert opinion on tenure.

    False. Their SALARIES are $75K average. Not total compensation packages. Total compensation packages are much much higher than that.

    Is this your way of saying that you can't tell me how I'm wrong?

    Oh yes it does. Just because you don't like it and are misinformed on it (as are most antiunion people) means nothing to it. Tenure will always be around. They have it at non union schools too you know. Same protections.



    It's already happening and if they don't reign in spending, it's gonna happen again.

    The corruption is Chicago is meaningless.
    Someone is taking the time to control spending, before things get much worse.
    You and others are opposed to it, rather going with the status quo.
    Teachers have nothing to do with phony mortgages and mismanagment of funds. This "take control of spending" nonsense is a dodge.

    You have no way of proving that assertion.
