CTU Strike Ends...And You Had No Say In Any Of It

Just remember as word of the CTU's House of Delegates' decision to end the strike breaks: You had no vote in any of this.

No student had a vote. No parent had a vote. No elected official had a vote.

Only the members of the private organization called the Chicago Teachers Union had a vote on whether to call a strike, end it, and accept a contract presented to them under duress.

Every self-respecting believer in representative government should abhor that this private, highly political organization is able to set policy for Chicago's public schools.
