In late March, the Chicago Board of Education announced an ambitious plan to implement its “turnaround” model for three low-performing elementary schools in poor, predominantly black neighborhoods.
The turnaround process involves the sacking of every teacher and staffer at each of the schools, according to an email from the Chicago Teachers Union obtained by The Daily Caller.
Naturally, the union bosses aren’t happy that the nation’s third-largest school district is employing such sweeping measures to improve some of its worst schools.
Still reeling from the closure of 50 schools in 2013, embattled Chicago Teachers Union Karen Lewis called the turnaround plan “a slap in the face to those of us who are attempting to negotiate for more resources” and “nothing more than school closings by another name.”
The email from the teachers union also suggested that the effort to improve the schools is an effort spearheaded by Chicago Public Schools CEO Barbara Byrd-Bennett to damage black children and black families.
“This is an attack on Black schools that continues the assault carried out by” Byrd-Bennett “last year, when she closed 50 schools (claiming they were the last closings for at least five years).”

These union bosses and cronies need to leave the country( who says immediately?) for their own protection. I suggest sending to the Mideast and allow them the opportunity to education the children over there sense they done a fine job in this country. Anyone second that motion?
1 less leftist parasitic-self centered criminal sexual perverted fool (aren't they all?)=s several freed tax payers-citizens
More racism from a progressive-liberal racist who can't find any other way to express her concerns. Where is her hero..Mr. Obama? Mr. Rahm and Obama are good buddies.
Mizz Lewis looks like she has been slapped in the face also...numerous times.
She looks like she has used that pie hole numerous times too.
The Teachers Unions have become a protectionist group only interested in their own selfish interests to the detriment of the children who should be taught by competent professionals and not socialistic mind benders.
Pedeofiles fubk little kids correct my spelling if you can
In those neighborhoods and schools you 2nd and 3rd generation of students that has never had an authority figure of any kind, look at there environment nothing but crime and shootings, drugs Violence no respect for authority.
As far as the Teachers union go there are responsible for this situation by letting the union sell there votes the the to the Progressive Liberals, all I've have to do is point at the king Rat Barry Obama, all he dose is run around making very good speeches and promising a good life form all, " But In Reality He Dose Nothing" but take there money to buy more power
getting real fed up with everything blamed on race and economics...it is just not working anymore, because it is used for every excuse in the book. whenever there is a problem with the blacks...its always race...but never the substance of what the problem is.....the Chicago teachers are way too comfortable in their jobs, and they have a crooked union to save them from reality, and just like any other job, if you are failing in the job, then you get fired...what the hell is the difference even if you are a teacher.
The only good Union, is No Union, they are as corrupt as the United States government.
The white man can not win. The blacks blames everything on white America. It is time they stood up and took ownership of their children instead of the government. Their actions have a very negative effect on me.
The Chicago School system is failing, Chicago has 500 shooting deaths a year, The state pension fund is $100 billion short, and it is all run by Union Lunatics and the Democrats. Gosh, what could the cause be?
NO BIG DEAL. At this point Racist doesn't mean anything anymore. The libs throw it around so much it has lost its meaning so you should throw it back to them like a dead fish.
