Chicago teachers went on strike today for the first time in 25 years. 400,000 students and their families were affected. Teachers in Chicago are the highest paid in the nation and make an average $74,839 a year.

It took less than 24 hours for the Chicago Teacher’s Union to start using kids in their strike protests.

    Surprise this is, not. Progressives always use kids a propaganda tools, after brainwashing them.

  • Chris

    I heard a woman on the radio news(I assume it was a teacher)who said exactly this”It’s for the kids pure and simple.”

    What is for the kids? Because they can’t explain it. I guess it just sounds good, so they say it even though it is all about themselves. I’m sure MSNBC and CNN will use this sympathy for the strike.

  • obfuscatenot

    This is why I don’t sleep. I have argued against teachers unions since I was a child and will continue to do so. The main response I hear is, “These are our friends and neighbors, they’re good people.” I respond with, “I remember a group of good folks from a while back that were cozy with the Democrat party just like the unions, they wore white hoods, they were our friends and neighbors too.” The lynchings now are figurative and they happen in small towns just like big city Chicago. Even big government FDR knew public sector unions were wrong.

    Breitbart has some interesting additional information about this strike.

    1. Chicago teachers are the highest paid in the nation, averaging over $75K a year.

    2. While the teachers are demanding a substantial pay increase, apparently what the talks broke down over is proposed reforms to teacher evaluation, particularly a proposal to tie student test scores into the evaluations.

    3. Despite their high pay, 79% of eighth graders are not proficient in reading and 80% are not grade level proficient in math.

    1.Kids being used to get massive pay increases for unions

    2.Kids being used by some parents for entitlements

    3.Kids being used /exploited by Hollywood..then tossed away

    4.Babies murdered by Planned Parenthood for millions of $$$

    Kids/babies are nothing more than Gold ATM cards to Socialist Lefties

    Without a signed permission slip I would sue – and they would NEVER get a signed permission slip from us.

  • SoLongSong

    Adding insult to injury, these teachers INDOCTRINATE our children for more hours per day than most parents get to spend – and out of the parent’s sight.

    I think that’s part of the reason obama got elected in the first place and whey there’s not more of a hue and cry over his failed policies and dastardly (yep, I said it) intentions for this country.

  • Limousine Barry

    These are my kind of teachers. Just look as the size of their arses. They are humongous!

    All Unionized Teachers should be able to afford a Chauffeur Driven Stretch Limousine! After all they are limousine liberals… and can barely fit their fat butts in a car.

    Let me be clear, I will not stop spending until each teacher in all of the 57 states has a chauffeur driven limo!

    In the old days they measured a teacher buy the size of his/her girth… not the content of his/her character. [Whisper… whisper]. They didn’t? I’ll just lie.

    The 71 inch waste line on Chicago union leader Karen Lewis proves my point. I think Michael Moore would agree!


    If you like the way I give your money to my over-paid cronies’ then vote for me. And, this is important. Send me $30,000.00 before midnight. My campaign is going broke. Good day.

  • dwillmore

    I said it before and say it again here. I have had some good teachers, but by and large they are mostly a bunch of self serving overpaid blowhards.

    The teachers entering the profession are the ones underpaid and the first to be without a job as the older over paid bureaucrats hold onto their jobs they do not deserve.

  • Patty

    Well, who would expect anything more from these greedy losers. Are poor kids and we entrust our kids we these people. Sick and then compound things by using the kids?

    Embarrassment and sad commentary on America’s education system.

  • mg4us

    16% Pay raise over 4 years is not good enough for these union members so they make the kids suffer. . .

    I know a way that 34+% can get a BIG Bump in income without waiting four years. . .


    You heard that right. . over 34% of the Chicago PUBLIC SCHOOL teachers send their own kids to PRIVATE Schools because Public Schools not good enough

    And yet these free choicers oppose vouchers for students. . .

    I say it become a requirement that if you teach in public schools then your child need to go to one too from K-12. . .

  • anti-bho

    And this scum is destroying the country just as surly as the terrorists destroyed the Twin Towers in ’01.
    Just slower.

  • Bill Mitchell

    OMG I cannot believe it. Foxnews FINALLY called out CNN and the MSM for their BS polling samples. Now maybe we can get some national exposure on this scandal.

  • donh

    Hey….They need the raise to send their own kids to private school. Tuitions are UP thanks to Obamacare.

  • pst314

    It’s a routine, long-standing practice for Chicago teachers unions to bus in schoolkids for political actions. Scum indeed.

  • Finncrisp

    BTW, 39% of the children of Chicago teachers go to private schools. For Chicago public schools 89% of 8th grade level students do not read at grade level. 80% are not at grade level in math.

    Chicago public schools are one of the worst investments for education in the country, and among the highest paid. Go figure.

    And they are on the picket line because they won’t accept a 16% pay raise over 4 years.

    Training good little Marxists.


    Just as filthy muslims use children as human shields, so does Imam Obama and his union thugs. In my opinion, there is more to this ‘strike’ than meets the eye.

  • Bob

    The Che shirt demonstrates more about the unions and how they embrace socialism, communism and defend murderers like Che. This teacher union is like most unions. It is all about greed and power at the expense of taxpayers.

  • squeaky

    and we’d be shocked? the re-election of obamaprompter supersedes even the most vunerable.

  • Richard

    His Che t shirt tells it all….teaching kids to be good little revolutionaries…

  • squeaky

    all the while their fellow citizens tussle with unemployment/underemployment. you’d think they’d be embarassed given the comfort they have of knowing there will be a paycheck at the end of the day. complaining about not having shoes to someone who has no feet.

  • Nobamawoman

    Fire them all. Send your kids to private and parochial schools. Support vouchers. Home school. I’ve been saying the same thing for more than 25 years, since I first looked at public schools for my own children. Public school teachers are NOT “your friends and neighbors.” They’re useless, incompetent (and uneducated) public-tit suckers.

  • BuddyG

    Extra Discredit

  • Larkin

    Fire their asses.

    It will put a multitude of young people to work and return the city to solvency.

    Remember this is the same CPS system that Obama blew $100 million from the Annenburg Challenge and got nothing from it.

    No reforms were ever proposed or implemented except for more community organizing and political activism.

    The standards deteriorated and the schools got worse. It’s a prime example of Obama’s ‘leadership’ and ‘executive ability’.

    Today you have a bloated pension system which cannot possibly support itself without massive new tax hikes and borrowing. But the teachers’ union doesn’t care about that. The fat cats in the union want to get theirs before the system collapses and the pols want to make sure they get their usual campaign contributions and ‘volunteers’.

    If Obama really wanted to fix the school system he wouldn’t have blown the $100 million on programs run by people like his buddy Ayers, and he would’ve pushed for meaningful reform and educational excellence.

    But that is just like Obama. Pretending to be a ‘reformer’ while letting the corruption grow and fester.

  • Fulldawg

    Nothing wrong with a little revolution. After all our country was started by one.

  • paul52

    The first teacher has a ‘Che’ shirt. Guevara was a terrorist. 2nd asshat speaks of ‘a union controlled by its members’. Dream on, comrade!

  • Chris

    For all the money these teachers make and all the other incentives they want they sure don’t need a raise when half of the students in Chicago don’t even graduate. What are the teachers doing? Sitting around counting all their money they make already when they work very little
