    Indeed it does show that Unions aren't messing around.....But More Importantly it shows Everyone! That Unions Never put the Kids Interests First. Not even a Teachers Union.

    Should have seen the fall out with Emanuel coming out and saying this was honest negotiations, while out of the clear blue he starts crying while pointing out how the Children of Chicago come first.

    Do you think he thought it was honest when he had his attorneys run into court to get an injunction?

    Is this the Demos way now.....shed a liil tear over an issue that wouldnt be considered a major issue for a Mayor to be dealing with. I mean when they brake ground for a new school built. One of those Shovel ready projects, is he going to go all emotional and shed a few tears for that too?

    Today they are talking with the One of the main guys pushing Charter Schools and what he had to say now that the Strike is Over. I was hoping they get Video up on it. As I would like to see what the Union Supports of CPS has to say about those building a system or using one. Where they say they can get rid of those bad teachers. Which they feel is in the Best interests of those kids.

    Well the strike is over as I said it would be, so that settles that. And you have no idea what you're talking about.

    Looks Like quite a few knew what they were talking about. You just chose to ignore the facts. So the thread despite whatever you are saying shows otherwise!

    Which we all can live with that!

    WOW, you are a truly clairvoyant. What is your next prediction…the sun will come up tomorrow? Don't throw your arm out of socket pattin' yourself on your back.

    Or did you really believe we thought it would go on forever…

    Thank god those teachers managed to suffer through with only a total cost of $74 million to the tax payers. Now those kids who suffer with poverty can finally get a leg up in life because the teachers will get paid (whether or not they teach anything). I was very concerned that they might have to suffer through an evaluation to average $76,000 with $7,600 in raises coming over the next few years. Those kids sure got a great deal!

    Of course, since the only points of contention were directly related to the quality of the programs being taught and whether or not the kids had the best tools available, we should have known the children could come out ahead.

    Rahm Emanuel is in serious trouble politically. He just alienated a major constituency of his political base. And they will not easily forget it.

    And how do some of you teacher-bashers explain that quite a few children joined the strike?

    I'm not a teacher basher, although public sector unions are a plague, but I would say that it's hardly a winning argument that the undeveloped minds that these teachers are supposed to influence might have been confused about what was actually at stake.

    Insults aside; I read and listen. Someone along here didn't believe me when I said it would be over. So . . .

    You can get children to join anything, so that is not a very good argument. However, the parents did not join.

    So where do you think Chicago should cut to pay for this?
