In Chicago, the children in question are but targets or potential targets for the murderers who freely roam the city streets.
Paying teachers more money to educate a new generation of such murdering detritus is counter productive
Chicago schoolchildren have the SHORTEST SCHOOL DAY in the country, and Chicago Teachers are the HIGHEST PAID in the country.
See the problem?
The Chicago Public School say is 5 hours, 30 minutes. Of that 5 hours 30 minutes, 30 minutes is spent for lunch, another 30 minutes for recess.
That means Chicago Public School teachers spend approximately 4 hours, 30 minutes "teaching" these kids.
Any wonder why Chicago's High School graduation rate is the lowest in the country?
And for this, the Chicago Public School Teachers want a 28%+ raise.
