I am in NW Indiana and make FAR LESS than a Chicago teacher and have not had a raise in 4 years. I do not believe that a longer school day is the answer, but feel that a 16% raise is outrageous! I understand them wanting air conditioned schools because they go through July. I do think it's very crappy that the Union Pres. Was 90 minutes late to negotiations. I'm not sure how I feel but the things they are striking about have already been done to us in Indiana and nobody cared.......will explain after work.
