    Good for Ryan!! He is showing he can reach across party lines to support that which is right!! Teachers should be held accountable for their students grades, they should not be allowed to strike. Imagine turning down a 16% pay raise because you want more, not that you deserve it.

    The coverage of the strike has obscured some basic facts. The money has continued to pour into Chicago’s failing public schools in recent years. Chicago teachers have the highest average salary of any city at $76,000 a year before benefits. The average family in the city only earns $47,000 a year. Yet the teachers rejected a 16 percent salary increase over four years at a time when most families are not getting any raises or are looking for work.
