Chicago teacher strike ends after 11 days

Chicago teachers will return to class on Friday after reaching a labor contract deal Thursday. The agreement stipulates a 16 per cent raise for teachers over the life of the contract, a new committee to enforce smaller classroom sizes and $35 million per year to address overcrowding situations on a case-by-case basis. The agreement also provides funding to add social workers and nurses to schools.

16% raise? For what amounts to a part time job? What about this makes any sense?

I thought teachers helped get kids off the streets? Since these teachers put 300,000 students on the street.

It is delicious reading the nonsense comments by the anti-teacher clowns on this article. The teachers don't set the curriculum, state governments do. The budget is set by local school boards not teachers. The performance outcomes are set by more governments. If you try to build a house out of jello, following the rules of jello house building set by governments, and have an expectation of a "perfect" house compared to a house made of real house building materials, you're an idiot.
