Chicago Teachers Rally at Daley Plaza on Labor Day

Bless their hearts.

Contract talks are scheduled through Friday, and the union clearly hopes the added pressure of a strike threat leads to a settlement.

But the two sides remain far apart on issues including pay, a new teacher evaluation process and a recall policy for teachers who have been laid off. Union leaders said they're worried the district might try to close as many as 100 schools to save money and to consolidate resources.

In preparation for a possible strike, the district has said it will open 145 schools for a half-day and enlist the city's Park District and libraries in an effort to provide a place for the district's non-charter-school students to go. Charter schools employ teachers who are not CTU members and will stay open if there is a strike.

For the children. This is for the beleaguered children of a bankrupt, failing school system whose unions care deeply about their plight.

We should count our blessings, that Scott Walker has unleashed a firestorm in Wisconsin against these monsters. The waves are slamming against the ramparts of the deeply entrenched, as far away as Chicago. And it's making them a bit jittery.

Good. Here's what I remember about Illinois Teacher Unions and their altruistic concerns for the education of children.


Can't you just feel her deep concern? "Save our children" she says. I agree. Save them from these dug in public service union ticks sucking the blood out of our society. The sooner the better.


I hate Illinois Nazis.
