  • are you scared of the competition?

  • Communications

    It arrived by mail yesterday dated July 12th .My very own letter from the Human
    Resources bureau of CPS.I wondered if it was a gift certificate for a gold watch
    in appreciation of my 41 years of faithful service or, perhaps a certificate of appreciation?
    Was it another bull=shit application for Who

  • In reply to rbusch:

    It must be by age. A colleague of mine who is 61, but only has 20 years of service received a letter, while teachers younger than she with more years of service did not get the letter.

    Don't look at it as an insult, Bob. Clark Street is staffed by 20-somethings who just don't know any better.

  • Bob, CPS is looking to save money anyway that they can. CPS is looking at NOT PAYING principals, assistant principals and administrators their sick days! WTF! P.S.- The Board of Trustees of the Chicago Teachers' Pension Fund voted to continue subsidizing health insurance coverage for recipients of retirement, disability, and survivor pensions, but will reduce the subsidy to 60%, effective January 1, 2011. The current subsidy is 70%. Beginning on January 1, 2011, retirees, disability pensioners, and surviving spouses enrolled in non-CTPF health insurance plans (except Chicago Public or Charter School Cobra) WILL NO LONGER QUALIFY FOR THE SUBSIDY!

  • Thank you.

  • The state of Illinois needs to control teacher and education administrator costs in a way that retains quality educators by incentivizing them to improve education and still control costs.

    Here is a great video on just how to do that:

  • Thank you. I have all the same things to say. Not to mention money spent for replacing novels that never get returned, paper for copies, fans for our unairconditioned rooms, staplers, hole punchers, file folders, post-its, printer ink, thumb tacks, and all the other office supples that people in the private sector get from the supply room. I have to go now because I have to finish filling out the 8 page grant proposal I'm working on to get additional student reading materials for my school.
