    the union/teachers won big...which was inevitable...

    665 million bucks in the hole... and now 75 million more bucks added to that number.
    ...and at the end of the day, no increase in academic standards, and no/little accountability for performance... for the highest paid teachers in the land.

    And still, far less expensive than the subsidies we pay farmers to grow corn and then throw it away.

    alright then...

    I guess the city of Chicago should stop paying it's farmers to grow corn.

    well, I guess the city needs to get some corn farms first, though

    Teachers win. Children and taxpayers lose, again.

    those poor students now get taught by art and music and PE teachers, which would not have been the circumstance except for the teachers' union insistence. how damaging to those children

    and they were further hurt by having smaller numbers in their class rooms

    and those taxpayers. why the hell are they electing officials who would compromise on things like pay for teachers' additional time on the clock

    Teachers do not need to employ greed to their jobs: that’s not how collective bargaining works. So that idea is out the window.

    Hiring more teachers to lesson the load and offer more classes in the arts was part of the deal to begin with. It’s a win for everyone particularly the students.

    Teachers all over are having to buy supplies without any reimbursement so this contract now means that they’ll get part of their money back. And the district will not pay for personal items, so that’s just BS.

    I know from experience that there is always 30% in most any school that is up for grabs so to speak. So keeping in the 30 percentile is much more accurate and realistic.

    Rham thought he could come out swinging and run over the teachers: that didn’t happen. The teachers got more of what they wanted than not and they set a god example for the rest of the country. So Rham Emanuel did get his head handed to him.
    Exactly correct. It's funny because here in Chicago, Rahm has ads running where he tries to save face by essentially claiming he got what he wanted out of the strike, when he didn't. Bad for Rahm and his ego, good for everyone else.
