re: Chicago public school teachers refuse to come back to in-person learning
Gives the rest of us a bad rep. Do your job , quit or get fired... only way to handle it . Elementary and middle school need as much in person learning as possible . Our HS students who opted for virtual are doing quite well considering though . At that age it is more or less just not being lazy and time management with every one of our students having a MacBook

But that's exactly what the Union is fighting for. Doing half (or less) of the job you had to do for in-person teaching, yet maintaining your full pay.



yeah I'm aware and I'm very anti-teachers unions

Remember this when these same people scream “privilege” about private school graduates in a few years.



Yep. It is totally wild to me that the people most in favor of lockdowns are the same people who are constantly screeching about wealth disparity. All Covid has done is widen that gap, and it will continue happening as we frick over public school children while private school children continue getting an education uninterrupted.

I remember them fighting hard for state governments to forbid private schools from being open at the beginning of the school year. Crabs in a bucket. They realized the things they're advocating for are only hurting their own people further.

Will be quite interesting to see the massive disparity between these public vs. private school kids 10-15 years from now purely from the lockdowns.

Those teachers union crybabies are always sky screaming and pulling stunts like this to try and convince everyone that their jobs are "so hard" and they're so underpaid.

Fire them all. frick em.

re: Chicago public school teachers refuse to come back to in-person learning
Since August the entire local district with at least a little over 54% doing face to face has had about 4% of the total student population test positive including those on campus within 2 days of symptoms or positive test and positives who were off campus at least 2 days before symptoms if not always in virtual. Yet some parents and teachers are freaking about our high school having double digit positives on campus last week.

There is also no proof that spread is mostly occurring at the actual school if at all. Other nearby high schools went up which have some crossover in neighborhoods due to being newer or redrawn boundaries. What High schoolers do after school is where spread is mostly occurring. Also college students had just left to go back weekend before, so any that spent time partying with friends and then spent time after this with family might also have pushed some numbers.

It seems controlled by district by pretty standard procedures in place and just a reflection of area, but there are always the sky is falling types out there. We didn’t use to pay so much attention to them like we have past several years.

Surely these Chicago teachers and students can follow simple guidelines and focus on students wellbeing and improving their education by being in class.

I don't think there is much reason to believe the Chicago public school community values education. The kids are likely no more interested in returning to school than the teachers. And their parent(s)? Lol

It has nothing to do with this. It's about them being able to continue to half-ass their job remotely while still collecting their full paychecks. They don't give two fricks about the kids or what this is doing to them.

It's the government employee way.


This right here. The Chicago Teachers Union is one of the strongest teacher's unions in the country. They are as liberal as one can get, yet they give zero fricks about the fact that the pandemic and remote teaching is disproportionately affecting children of color. It's not about the kids, it's never been about the kids.

I just checked the CDC stats today...58 out of 347,131 deaths have been in children aged 5-14.

Stop paying them, they'll change their minds.
