Well-read Red: Chicago Teachers Strike

program date: 
Mon, 09/17/2012

 With a brief introduction by Iven Hale, Well-read Red Frann Michel offers an array of analyses about the real stakes of the Chicago Teacher's Strike. She presents arguments that defend the teachers union as fighting a rank-and-file organized campaign against neoliberal education reform. She cites numerous examples of how both the Democrats as well as the Republicans are behind the gutting of public education that Chicago teachers are fighting against, and how in the process these teachers are breathing life into the labor movement as one aimed at a better society and not just a better contract.

A written version of this commentary with linked citations can be found HERE.

On the Chicago Teacher's Strike

For the Old Mole Variety Hour 17 Sept 2012

Joanne Barkan in Dissent Magazine notes that,

Yes, schoolchildren in Chicago are victims, but not of their teachers. They are victims of a nationwide education “reform” movement geared to undermine teachers’ unions and shift public resources into private hands; they are victims of wave after wave of ill-conceived and failing policy “innovations”; they are victims of George Bush’s No Child Left Behind law, which turned inner-city public schools into boot camps for standardized test prep; they are victims of Barack Obama’s Race to the Top program, which paid states to use student test scores—a highly unreliable tool—for teacher evaluations and to lift caps on the number of privately managed charter schools, thus draining resources from public schools. Chicago’s children are victims of “mayoral control,” which allows Rahm Emanuel to run the school system, bully parents and teachers, and appoint a Board of Education dominated by corporate executives and political donors.
