Parents Protest Against Chicago Teachers Union
Will Dehring of Chicago reported than many of the complaints he heard teachers make were "complete balderdash" saying that when he attended school in Chicago there was no air conditioning and that was fine with him. The students couldn't even have erasers because of the rubber drives.
George Kallem said that teachers were much better when he went to school before the union made them lazy, "I won a geography bee in 3rd grade for naming all 46 states. I was so proud."
Several polls conducted during the strike showed overwhelming support for the teachers, but as these active and involved CPS parents gummed their blackberry cobblers, you wouldn't hear a single positive word for the teachers or their union.
"Get back and teach you bums!" said Ann Young summing up what many protesters were thinking.
