I received a note about moving to Chicago and joining Chicago Public Schools. I said if I have to join the Chicago Teachers Union, the answer is no. I have no sympathy for them. If you don’t like your contract, don’t sign it. There is no excuse for breaking a contract. If you don’t like working there, then go find somewhere else to work. The CTU clearly does not put children first. Too many teachers in CPS, that aren’t in teaching for the right reasons.

Well, it depends on if you’re looking at an aggregate or just the latest round. The most recent is the potential $1.78 billion, but if you add in the earlier funds mentioned, you get $2.78 billion. Without a link to the original source, I don’t know which number prompted the initial post.

Blue states robbing the rest of America!

Hi CMS1… The term “welfare queen” was coined by President Reagan, when he falsely claimed that Chicago was full of women driving around in Cadillacs that they bought with government handouts. No such persons ever existed, but the narrative stuck. If the term is good enough for the President of the United States, I think I’m allowed to use it, too.

Time and time again, I’m shocked and horrified at people like you being allowed inside a classroom with children. I teach facts that can be backed up with evidence. “Blue states robbing the rest of America” is completely at odds with the facts.

My school has used The Boomerang Project in the past to help students transition from middle to high school. By the time I found out the 2 teachers who lead the program were leaving our school it was too late to receive the training last spring. I looked today to see when the next training is happening so I could talk to my principal about signing up, however every training is sold out! Does anyone know of a program that is comparable to look into? Google search has not helped.
