    Time to pay teachers based on merit and add bonuses for improvement. If they don't want to teach then fire them. :mad:

    I'm just wondering how that whole "Hope and Change" thingy is working out for those people...

    I was gonna say Chicago but then my post would be considered racist because I used a dogwhistle coded word or some such dumb ass thing.

    I heard a brief soundbite from a spokeswoman for the teachers union strikers and she sounded like an ignorant street person. What do you expect from the kids? It seems like the radical left wants to run Chicago like a small socialist country where the elites work for the government and the rabble struggles in poverty or deals with confiscatory taxes to support the government.

    Can't read, can't write, they sound like the Progressives that post at USMB. Maybe Chicago is a training ground for them?

    With so many Chicago students not reading at grade level one would think the people in charge would have analyzed the problem and corrected it long ago. We all agree that children should not only read at grade level but read above grade level. Certainly, if it can be done in Lake Wobegon it can be done in Chicago.
    What's wrong with teachers and teacher unions they just keep bringing up these educational problems; if they just kept quiet like the education leaders there would be no problems. I can see why people get upset with teachers and teacher unions.
