Never, ever forget that the over pampered, overpaid, over perked, over pensioned, greedy, arrogant, ungrateful, low life, mostly low IQ, ultra left wing public parasite teachers and their Communist thug infested unions are the sworn, mortal enemies of your children’s minds, bodies and souls and of your wallets. Written by the highly educated, professional educators on the blackboard in every Chicago school classroom the first day of every school year: "Dit yr we gonna be leaning U rettin, rittin and ritmatic."
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...
