  • Teachers complaining about E-3s? Are you joking? Cry me a river. What other "professional" employee who is performing unsatisfactorily receives a consultant and 90 work days (in front of children) to improve performance, and, failing that, a multi-day hearing before an independent hearing officer? It's a crime alright but the victims are children. . . not the unsatisfactory teachers.

    January 8, 2010 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- Two teens, including a Phillips High School basketball player, are charged with battery following a postgame fight. It happened last night in the halls of Curie High School.

    The victim is a 14-year-old Curie student who was beaten so badly, he'll need reconstructive oral surgery. He may lose as many as six teeth.

    Two 17-year-olds face possible expulsion.

    "Those students on the team who have been found to have violated the student code of conduct will face severe disciplinary action," said Monique Bond, Chicago Public Schools spokesperson.

    CPS will also look into the possibility coaches and others didn't provide enough supervision of the students.

    That's right Monique-put blame on the faculty and staff before you have the full story. Does CPS pay for the security guards needed at afterschool games? NO! So will you blame Ron for not providing the money, since he is all about cutting jobs at the SCHOOL LEVEL?

  • Is there a "new schools" fair coming up at the end of this month? Or, some kind of "school choice" fair for Chicago?

    Substance Editor George Schmidt scares them away. http://myloc.me/2KUri

    Really shows you that the city is not interested in reform they just want control. The city should join the summit not punish the participants.

  • Are you that desperate Ron? So did Huberteam think it was a good idea to boot cars at Malcolm X today?
    If someone on your team thought this, shame on you and them. Next, are you going to send them in the school parking lots on school days when children are present?

    I have already filed an unfair labor paractice claim with IELRB in this matter. Please contact me if you feel your rights as a union member have been violated with the recent correspondences and threats from stewart and huberman.
