Your right. I worked for kern county for 32 days years ago and all I heard was, Slow down Slow down. I just wasn't geared for the slow pace or the lack of a feeling of accomplishment. I was like dead people going to work.
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...
