This strike does nothing more than hurt the kids of Chicago. These teachers in Chicago get better pay and benefits then most the country and they are out there still complaining. There are teachers in this country who barely make ends meet, and get second jobs while still coming into the classroom smiling because they love to teach.
I understand that teachers shouldn't be held to standardized testing. I agree 100% with that, but being out of the classroom does nothing but hurt those kids.
You can negotiate terms and get something done while still teaching and growing young minds.
This whole situation amazes me because they are so short sighted as to who this strike really hurts...not the mayor, or principals...the students are who really suffer.
