Chicago Public Schools woes

(CBS) – The Chicago Public Schools system says it’s going ahead with plans to lay off nearly 1,000 employees.

About 350 of those laid off reportedly will be teachers, and about 360 will be classroom aides, along with 220 members of SEIU, who are special education aides and security guards.

And only 9% of the students are white? Oh shit… Custer’s Last Stand.

    Because of union rules, chicago has schools were teachers sit in empty classrooms and collect pay. Theae teachers have been convicted of crimes and can not be around kids but can not be fired.

    The SEIU ones are paid by the school division to handle union work.

    This sounds like they are finally taking out the dead wood.

      Or they’re playing “SG Sessions is stopping federal funds because he hates poor, helpless undocumented migrants” sympathy card.

      Hell, a majority of the little turds either don’t go to school there or are so full of dope they can’t learn anything if they do attend classes.

      OK Kim put the following data into your Nuke tipped missile:

      41.8781° N, 87.6298° W

      BOOM windy city!

    Ya know, Exile, you’re probably right, but…

    What pisses me off is the typical school district has a 5:1 or more ratio of admin types to teachers, but it’s always the teachers that get the ax; cutbacks never affect the bureaucrats who are primarily responsible for the general sad state of affairs. 700 of the 1000 cut here are teachers.

    My wife’s a teacher who works for the local HS district. Cutbacks always hit the classrooms, never the ‘office’.

    The root of the problem is the schools have forgotten what business they’re in. It’s not about teaching, but a jobs program for union workers.

    SEIU can sit on it and spin. Buncha thugs. A woman knocked on my inside door in my so-called secure apartment building and told me I was a member of SEIU regardless of whether I wanted to be or not. Union dues were to be deducted from my pay despite me working in a non-union shop and never having joined SEIU. I closed the door in her face.
