Chicago to close 54 more schools...$1B deficit


#1

As I’ve mentioned before, Chicago public schools are probably the most criminally and academically corrupt school system in the country. CPS should be the first to step up to the education guillotine. It is tantalizing to think what is going to happen now with Rahm violating one of the teacher union’s most sacred commandments: Thou shalt not kill the proverbial taxpayer’s golden goose! I wouldn’t be surprised if we heard that he was tarred and feathered in the next few days. The teacher’s unions and federations, CPS school board, teachers and corrupt politicians can take the credit for what has happened in the last 50 years in Chicago and elsewhere. And, as always, it is the children who always pay the price.

Yeppers! This move is not being well-received:

Opponents Call Rahm Emanuel Chicago School Closing Plan 'Racist’
by Wynton Hall


2013/03/23

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s decision to close 53 public schools and 61 buildings in largely minority neighborhoods to help close a $1 billion budget shortfall has some opponents calling the Emanuel plan “racist.”

“[Emanuel] says that he wants to turn around the city of Chicago, make a new Chicago. Does that new Chicago mean no black folks?” said co-founder of the Lawndale Alliance Valerie Leonard. “Where are people going to go? They’re not going to stay around in the community if there are no schools!”

Chicago Teachers Union President Karen Lewis, who calls Emanuel’s cost-cutting school consolidation plan “racist,” says the mayor has earned a new nickname. “He is the murder mayor,” said Lewis. “Look at the murder rate in this city. He’s murdering schools, he’s murdering good jobs. He’s murdering housing. I don’t know what else to call him. He’s the murder mayor.”

I have to confess more than a little schadenfreude at the Race Card being played on Mayor Rahm! And by the teacher’s union! Well, guess what? The racialists among blacks and the teacher’s union made their own bed! Now it’s time to lie in it! "A pox o’ (all) their house(s)!

There you are, I was wondering about you in the Lounge.

I don’t say what I said about Chicago as to punish all from Chicago. However, the whole country needs to know from where our present scourge cam and not allow it go national ever again.

Part of the problem with the CPS is the third party cirriculum that’s bought by the CPS every other year. They keep changing it and the teachers and students cant catch up. The other problem is that teachers as qualified as they may be don’t have many of the basic tools needed to properly teach, unless they pay for the supplies themselves(Pencils, textbooks, erasers, folders, computers etc) The other problem is the parents flat out. They send their kids to school near starving and it’s difficult to teach a child on an empty stomach. These parents priorities are screwed up. My co-workers Wife is a teacher in the CPS and to give you an example, and parents will keep their kids home for a day and return the child to school the next day with a note saying that they were absent because they were getting their hair done. I came out of the CPS in the 70’s and early 80’s. It was different then, the tools were there, all of the basics. we also werent worried about getting shot walking to school so we could focus easier on our school work. I have a lot of respect for the teachers, but they’re playing with a rigged game, and many of them would rather be teaching in suburbs with healthier tax bases. However they tough it out in the ghettos of Chicago and that takes moxy.
