I think the Chicago teacher strike is misguided. This is ultamately about educating children not a damn paycheck. So the students are gonna suffer greatly unless they have good caring parents that are homeschooling RIGHT NOW and not waiting for the doors to open back up like most of them are doing.
BUT I understand why the teachers are so upset, because they are given a gigantic workload and on top of that, they have NO CONTROL over their classrooms due to the deadbeat parents and lobbyists pitching fits about teachers disciplining their unruly monsters.
I get it teachers of Chicago, I feel your pain. You have limited power and resources to do your job and it's all because of the Liberal Psychos of America that condemn you. I get it.
I am Soooo glad I decided NOT to be a Math teacher and instead start my own business. the absolute BEST decision I ever made in my life.
Good luck with the strike Teachers but I can tell you right now, your efforts are fruitless, you should MOVE outta Chicago and find a job. don't wait around for the City Council or even Obama to come fix things. not gonna happen.
GET OUT NOW. You've been warned.
