From Chicks on the Right:
An investigative reporter by the name of Chuck Goudie posted that on his Facebook page, to show just how wretched that school is. It’s on the south side of Chicago, in one the most impoverished and dangerous areas of the city. Only 6 out of every 10 freshmen graduate.
And the average teacher salary in the Chicago Public School system? SEVENTY SIX THOUSAND DOLLARS ANNUALLY. The teacher’s union there negotiated 17% raises for themselves over the last 3 years. And these are the results.
And that’s another reason that I want to punch unions in the face. And it’s another reason I want to punch people who are opposed to school choice in the face.
Meanwhile, 79% percent of the 8th graders in the Chicago Public Schools are not grade-level proficient in reading, according to the U.S. Department of Education, and 80% are not grade-level proficient in math.
