    Framework For Teachers' Contract In Place, School Likely Monday

    The overall compensation package would increase teacher salaries, on average, 16 percent over four years. The latest proposal includes retaining STEP wage increases — which are based on teacher experience — with larger increases for tenured teachers. Those increases will cost hundreds of millions of dollars, but both sides differ on the exact cost.

    It also calls for an annual 2 percent cost-of-living increase for the four years of the deal, retaining current contractual class size language, and establishing a joint committee to craft a new teacher evaluation plan.

    I am surprised that charter schools are not popular in Chicago.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    Re: Framework For Teachers' Contract In Place, School Likely Monday

    The Chicago Public Schools teachers’ union agreed Tuesday to end the strike and accept some of Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s reforms in exchange for pay increases that would bring the average teacher’s salary to nearly $100,000 a year.

    Reforms include holding teachers partly accountable for their students standardized test scores.

    But according to a 2008 study by Illinois Education Research Council, CPS teachers don’t perform much better on standardized tests than their own students.

    In Illinois, all high school juniors and seniors are required to take the ACT test, whether they plan to attend college or not. Public school teachers in Chicago who took the test when they were in high school averaged a score of 19 out of a possible 36 — which is worse than the average median score for all students nationwide.

    In fact, Illinois students beat the teachers, scoring a 21 on average, though Chicago-area students only scored in the 17-18 range.

    Shouldn’t the teachers know significantly more than their students? Scott Reeder, an investigative reporter at the Illinois Center for Public Policy, thought so.

    “I question if the city of Chicago has been recruiting from the best talent pool and getting the very best teachers to teach their youngsters, if the group as a whole has an average ACT score of 19,” he said in an interview with The Daily Caller

    The study also showed that younger, newer teachers tended to have higher test scores.

    Unfortunately, when it comes to layoffs, the union often puts the interests of its most senior members first, said Reeder.
