RIGHTS OF THE CHILD TRUMP RIGHTS OF ANY DYSFUNCTIONAL It is the right of any child to be born solely to those tested, proven and certified as sufficiently competent to safely raise children. Applying this standard while strictly enforcing the same will do much to rid poverty in America. Criminal and civil penalties must be applied to those that bring children into the world when dysfunctional.
It says something about today’s public education reality that the two sides in the teachers’ union dispute in Chicago are the union and the mayor.

Allegedly the point of schools is to educate children. But which side in this dispute has sole interest in children and their parents?

The answer, of course, is neither side.

Unions are about the economic interests of the teachers. The mayor is about his budget and the economic interests of the city.

No one solely represents the interests of the kids.

It’s not to say that...
