It is sometimes difficult to communicate with someone who is against personal responsibility.
Blame whatever you like, but the fact is that the education systems have failed city residents.
Lewis reminisced about her teaching days, when she would lie to parents when it came time to discuss their child’s performance. She then said – because of her lies – the student became her “hostage” who would do what she wanted.So yeah, I would say they are putting their own interests before those of their students. Pathetic really.“Do you have an insane principal?” she said, to laughs and clapping. “Anybody have an insane principal? Take ‘em out. What that means is remove them, by the way, Fox News … How do you do that? You organize to make their lives so miserable.”
Chicago Teachers Union President Laughs About Lying to Parents, Turning Students Into
I did not say, "Show me an article from a conservative website that takes the President of CTU's words out of context, but doesn't demonstrate how the union contributes to the problems with Chicago public schools."
Here are examples of what I meant when I asked, "What blame does the Chicago's Teachers Union share in the problem with Chicago public schools? Be specific and show causation.":
A non-partisan study showing that the teacher's union has hurt the Chicago public schools.
A policy that the teacher's union pushed for that is demonstrable bad for schools.
Can you provide that or something similar or not?
