Rejecting Accountability

The Chicago Teachers Union has been on strike for a week or so because they loathed the idea that the city would hold teachers accountable for actually doing their jobs in a manner that showed some measurable level of competance.

Rejecting Accountability
If Accountability Is Bad For Teachers…

OK! Shouldn’t we apply this same rejection of accountability and performance to the students as well? If nothing else, doing so would eliminate the performance gap on Chicago’s South Side. 😆 No grades; no failures; no problems.

Those who can’t do, teach. Those that can’t even teach, join labor unions so that they can continue to feed off of society until society finally purges itself of their parasitic infection.

It’s not as if, given the nature of the teachers’ complaints, removing grades and report cards from Chicago’s schools would lower the level of education that the students receive. If it would, the teachers would have felt the need to go on strike in the first place.

    Jonolan ,

    Well at least they are not the Mexican teacher’s union . Over one third of Mexican high school students flunked Spanish .

    Sadly Alan, the numbers really aren’t much better in America, especially in places like Chicago or Detroit.

  3. Alan Scott Says:


    More hypocrisy. 39 % of Chicago teachers send their kids to private school.

  4. jonolan Says:

    That’s classic 😆

    It makes sense though. They know better than anyone else how much of failure they are and don’t want to do that to their own children.

    Funny though, how they’re ranting for more money when they can afford to send their kids to private school in the Chicago area.
