Yes, there are many fine and dedicated teachers in our public schools and being in the teacher's union doesn't make them a poor teacher. But poor teachers do exist and it is very difficult and expensive for a school to get rid of a poor teacher because of the union. In my opinion, no public sector job which is funded by tax dollars should allow unionization. Taxpayers are paying for services and should not be threatened with strikes and work slowdowns over wages, benefits or pensions because there is no competition for services in the public sector. Taxpayers are stuck with the police, fire, water, sanitation workers and teachers hired by local governmental units.

40 percent is the drop-out rate for Chicago Public School Children

40 percent is how many Chicago Public School Teachers won’t send their kids to any public school…not even in Suburbia

40 percent of Chicago Public School 8th Graders rated “basic” and 36 percent rated “below basic” so nearly 80% were not proficient in reading

40 thousand dollars – average household income of Chicago Tax Payers ----- well over 100 thousand is the average household income of Chicago Public School Teachers
