    Chicago teachers union to continue strike

    The Chicago teachers union decided Sunday to continue its weeklong strike, extending an acrimonious standoff with Mayor Rahm Emanuel over teacher evaluations and job security provisions central to the debate over the future of public education across the United States.

    Union delegates declined to formally vote on a proposed contract settlement worked out over the weekend with officials from the nation's third largest school district. Schools will remain closed Monday.

    Union president Karen Lewis said teachers want the opportunity to continue to discuss the offer that is on the table.

    "Our members are not happy," Lewis said. "They want to know if there is anything more they can get."

    She added: "They feel rushed."

    She said the union's delegates will meet again Tuesday, and the soonest classes are likely to resume is Wednesday.

    News from The Associated Press


    Although we all thought a deal was reached, "the framework was there"as Lewis stated, the delegates decided not to vote, they wanted to see if THEY COULD GET MORE.

    The schools are already in debt. They are second highest paid teachers in the nation.

    There is a law that they cannot strike for any other issue than salary. It's time for the CHicago Schools to take them to court and get them back into the classroom.

    They are just greedy and scared thay might lose their jobs for not being good teachers so they are throwing this big old hissy. Fire them all, there are plenty of teachers looking for jobs.

    I would tend to agree. Once they are ordered back into the classroom. perhaps they could all be pink slipped and new hires take place. All striking teachers would have to come in and be interviewed for jobs. See how they like that!

    Parents, who thought the strike was over are now scrambling at the 11th hour finding sitters for their kids tomoorow or calling their employers and telling them they cannot work. All because of the greedy union.

    Yeah....they spend the best part of their lives educating your snotty nosed, over entitled, no consequence and/or parental involvement beats....because they don't care.

    And God forbid the teacher...or even the school holds those beats accountable for their "I don't have to work for anything" attitudes....then you over-coddling parents blame the teacher and/or the school.

    But yeah....they deserve to be paid like Walmart employees.

    yes they do....your little tax deductions don't want to work for their grades. Judging from your use of the English language....you were one of them back in your day.
