NBC News(about 400,000 children will not get their "instruction", during Chicago school strike)
NBC News | 9/9/12

Posted on 09/09/2012 3:59:47 PM PDT by DallasBiff

Lester Holt, NBC news anchor around 5:40 PM CDT on 9/9/12 went to a reporter, in Chicago, and the reporter said that appx. 400,000 children would not be "instructed" if the teachers went on strike.

Obamanomics in action, if you "rich" Americans don't give us Chicago teachers, more money, we will stop "instructing".


TOPICS: Education
KEYWORDS: obama; romney; vanity
The NEA, National Education Association, is flexing their muscle, against Obama and Chicago surrogate Rahm Emmanuel, and of course the democrats will wilt in the face of the NEA.

Sure they will, they'll all learn to hold a gun sideways so it looks cool when firing into a crowd.

The kids would probably be better off without government “instruction.”

I expect that this change would be an improvement for students.

What are the chances the kids actually get smarter during the strike?

40% dropout rate in Chicago?

Chicago’s rating is based on its public schools’ test results; 10 is best.

Chicago rates a 3...

But, the left loves to exploit children (and a finite number of other groups), for political gain.

The union’s initial demand included a 19% pay raise the first year.

No, but I examine seeing the extortion, being perpetuated by the NEA, and how Rahm Emmannueal will screw us all as he pleasures Obama and the NEA.

Just a little kabuki theater for the taxpayers, the ones that are left, before the cave-in by the Chicago gov’t.

Actually this sets a good stage for a showdown with the election coming. The longer the strike the more it hurts the RAT’S and Obummer.

400,000 children would not be "instructed" if the teachers went on strike.

They don't get any "instruction" now! Their school-day is only 5 and a half hours long, of which 30 minutes is "recess" and 30 minutes is "lunch" making their day 4 hours 30 minutes long - THE SHORTEST SCHOOL DAY IN THE COUNTRY!

Frankly, I really don't think anyone's going to notice these kids aren't getting "educated" given the brevity of their school day.

And to think, Chicago Public School teachers are the HIGHEST PAID in the country, and less than 50% of all Chicago Public Schoolkids will graduate high school....

You are COMPLETELY OVER-ESTIMATING the intelligence of the average Chicago voter! They'll find a way to blame Bush, you can bet on that.

I was thinking the same thing.

The dropout rate in Chicago schools is 40% anyway, the others may be better off just going to a library.

Government schools are left wing induction centers. The only “instruction” the kids get is liberal propaganda. The best thing that could ever happen to students would be for the teachers to strike forever. Public education/government schools have been a colossal failure and need to be shut down permanently.

In secret meeting...Rahm and Chi Teachers Union President...

RAHM: "I need for you to get all your teachers out and get out the votes for obama."

UNION PRESIDENT: That's cool, baby, but what's in it for us?"

RAHM: "You go on strike for 3 or 4 days and you and I sit in my office a couple of times a day until day 4 and watch Oprah and Judge Joe Brown. We come out every day and tell the Press we're getting close. On last day we come out smiling and announce we've settled for an 18% raise. Everyone is happy."

UNION PRESIDENT: "Sounds like a good plan. Ugh...Hmm...Aren't you forgetting something, sweetie?"

RAHM: "Oh, yeah..... At midnight tonight, go to 63rd & Stoney and park in front of that pool hall. I'll have the Police Commissioner send a guy to break the street light, so it will be darker. I'll have someone meet you with an envelope."

UNION PRESIDENT: "Make sure it's a thick envelope. I'll be 50 years old next year and I'm retiring. I means, I worked hard for this early retirement. I needs me a big fine White-man's House down in Palm Beach."

RAHM: "How about instead of a thick envelope, I send it in a brief case? It's DNC money, anyway."

UNION PRESIDENT: "You da man, sugar. Now, give me little kiss and let's go speak to the Press about my strike."
