The Education system is broken. The problem isn't the teachers they are mostly hard working dedicated people. The problem is the ratio of school board employies to teachers in the classroom. Some how the ratio in most school boards has ballooned close to 50%. In my school district there is one school board employee for every 15 students but we have an average of 27 students per class room. What do the non classroom people do? With these rediculous ratios the public school boards are opening the door for private schools where most of the resources are in the class rooms.
I might add I think it is dispicable that the city and the union had the whole summer to work this out and they couldn't. They all should be fired. It is obvoius to me that no one really cares about the students. Just think if you live in Chicago you are putting your childrens future in the hands of these imcompetent idiots. Mortgage the house and send your children to private school.
