How can Rahm say teachers must share the burden?
Educators are working with little or no resources, 40 students to a classroom, no social emotional support for students, 13 standardized tests a year, buildings that are falling apart while more money is given to build new charters, longer school days, less resources, Aarmark`s half ass custodian service leaving our schools and classrooms filthy.
Hundreds if not thousands of dollars spent from teachers’ own pockets to provide materials for their classrooms.
Downtown the board expands their staff while they cut teachers from positions.
What other profession gives so much and then is asked to take a pay cut? None that I know of.
The Mayor should be advocating for the teachers of Chicago. Instead he turns his back and blames them for this mess.
Shamful Rahm. Just shameful.
STAND STRONG CTU.
