A Chicago teacher tell you what this is about, an open letter from Leslie Russell
Chicago Teachers Union has went on strike, despite not having a strike fund, and despite Penny Pritzker, ALEC and Bill Gates . This is about more then teacher salary, this is about education, about trying to privatize public schools, about using TIF as slush funds for the mayors fundraisers, about rich people screwing the poor. Support our students, they are our future. Photo of teachers marching in the Loop, by Phenakistoscope
Listen to today’s Majority Report: Sam Seder interviews Rick Perlstein on the strike, the Mayor’s perfidy, the monetization of school reform and corporate welfare. Plus Matt Farmer indicts Penny Priztker & the Mayor.
The most damning indictment to date.
