You do have a point, faultroy, Americans are just not into fixing things. They could have changed many of these conditions before they got beyond the point of no return, They instead just let others decide what is taught in school, who teachess it and what the rules will be; just leave me alone with my American Idol, my football game, my Government provided Cell Phone, food stamps, rent subsidies. Heck, I don't even have to fix a sandwich for my kids, they eat ar school where Government jobs are provided to buy and prepare food for Needy Children which, in Chicago means 86% of ALL children! Those providing the two meals a day (incidently, that is all I eat) are of course UNION DUES PAYING WORKERS with BENEFITS also!

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
