Now that the Chicago Teachers Union’s big strike is over they have time for other activities. Like pushing the communist idea of “social justice.” And so, the CTU is helping host a “Teaching for Social Justice” event this month.
So, some of the highest paid teachers in the country are all about “the struggle,” eh? (Media base for CTU teachers is $67,974 annually)
Of course, that brings me back to the question I sort of hinted at above: are Chicago’s teachers doing their jobs?
Well, as John Ruberry notes, not so much.
According to the US Department of Education, 79 percent of eighth graders at Chicago’s public schools are not proficient at their grade-level in reading and 80 percent of them aren’t proficient in math at their grade-level
As Chicago’s teachers fail to teach, at least they are leading the way in socialist/communist ideology, eh?
Am I over reacting? Hardly. The poster advertising the event even goes so far as to utilize the most used communist symbol of them all, the raised fist.
This is radical leftism all the way around. The proper form of justice is our own Constitutional system. There is no such thing as “social justice.” That whole phraseology is merely a surrogate for communo-socialist ideals. And this anti-American, anti-human garbage is what our taxpayer supported teachers are foisting on the world.
No wonder this nation voted back into office the most socialist-leaning President in U.S. history.
