The educational crisis in Chicago is our fault and we fully accept the blame
Karen Lewis, the current Chicago Teachers Union President, sent shock waves through the educational and Leftist union universe yesterday when she fully admitted that the horrific condition that is afflicting the Chicago area school system is to be mostly blamed on her own union and its policies.
“It’s time that the Chicago Teachers Union stop the self-absorbed, administration-focused, student-hating, policies that has gutted the financial stability of our school system and destroyed the educational future of hundreds of thousands of school children. We need to come to grips with the fact that our union was founded to look after the best interests of its members, not the children that we claim to do everything in the name of. “
HAHAHAHA!! I was almost rolling in the floor with laughter after I wrote that! Imagine that! A union boss that actually accepts some responsibility and wants to look at real solutions instead of trying to win more concessions from the taxpayer and blame-shifting all over the place.
No. As you can imagine, the real story is a bit different.
During a recent speech to the City Club of Chicago, Lewis focused on her two most inflammatory excuses for CPS’ failures: “racism” and “rich white people.”
“When are we going to address the elephant in the room? When will there be an honest conversation about the poverty, racism and inequality that hinders the delivery of a quality education product in our school system?”
…asked the bloated, race-baiting, Leftist, tax-hiking, blame-shifting fat ass of a teacher’s union leader (Karen Lewis) in Chicago. The article goes on to state
After blaming the district’s problems on white people and literally calling for billions in new taxes, Lewis pushed back against perceptions she’s a far-left extremist. …
Some audience members must have been wondering if they were listening to the same union leader who, last September, led a teachers’ strike that forced the nearly bankrupt school district into doling out roughly $220 million in pay raises.
Kind of sounds like a broken record…like it always does.
