Whatever you say.
Still no discussion about the ACT's effect on teacher evaluations? Still moaning and whining about how teachers "make too much"? Wow, just, wow.
Just admit you were wrong. Why is it so hard for you? Instead of admitting you were wrong when I debunked your source, you turned around desperatly trying to find sources to prove your point, but they do not because your point is wrong.

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.
Now the issue is Hiring back all the teachers that were fired. Then they went on to schools closing. Now Lewis is blaming the Charter Schools and that they are holding up the Negotiations. As reported on.....
Talks aimed at settling the Chicago teachers strike inched along Wednesday, while away from the bargaining table debate focused on how Mayor Rahm Emanuel's hand-picked school board would implement an anticipated spate of school closings took center stage.
As he spoke with reporters, negotiators for the Chicago Teachers Union and Chicago Public Schools met at the Chicago Hilton and Towers on Michigan Avenue for their third bargaining session since the strike began at midnight Sunday. Late Tuesday, the district presented a revised contract proposal to the union and asked for a detailed response. Under the district's proposal, teacher raises would be structured differently, as requested by the union; evaluations of tenured teachers during the first year could not result in dismissal; later evaluations could be appealed; and health insurance rates would hold steady if the union agreed to take part in a wellness program.
The new proposal also removes the district's ability to rescind raises because of an economic crisis. The board stripped teachers of a 4 percent raise last year, sparking union distrust of the mayor.
School officials said Lewis, who has led union negotiations, had not met with district negotiators as of early Wednesday evening. But Lewis, who was at the Hilton throughout the day, noted that officials from each side had met and said she reviewed the district's proposal.
Lewis said the issues of anticipated school closings and continued pace of charter school openings — charters are privately run, publicly funded schools that employ non-CTU teachers — are affecting negotiations, particularly the issue of recalling teachers laid off when schools are closed or consolidated.....snip~

One excuse after another. But it was all for the kids.....Right? Any reason why these meetings couldnt have been held at one of the 100s of Closed down Schools that sit there with no one in them? Is there any reason why these meetings should be taking place in the Hilton on Michigan Ave? Where I am sure it costs a pretty penny to borrow space and have others cater to run for the treats and goodies. Especially since CPS and the City are economically strapped. One would think people would be looking out for waste.
Not looking to spend more.....while talking about all these Solutions for the Kids!
