The Chicago Strike Is Typical of American Politicians’ War on Teachers | Common Dreams

Teachers were once revered, with cops and firefighters. Now, the bipartisan consensus says bullying their unions is good politics

As you may have heard, these teachers are greedy, lazy bullies who are holding kids hostage in their mad lust for power. Their choice of profession is not at all motivated by an interest in child betterment, but entirely by the obscenely lavish salaries they receive – some even approaching those of skilled jobs that actually contribute to the public good, like sales managers and insurance underwriters. All this at – never forget – taxpayers’ expense. Even liberal bloggers warn that this strike will leave children forever scarred and ruin their future earnings, or at least their test scores.
