A Chicago Tribune editorial headline "Chicago Teacher Union fighting the inevitability of education reform," saying:

Teachers "aren't merely fighting City Hall. They're fighting the inevitability of education reform. They are denying the arc of history."

"They need to understand." Principles involved "are set in (federal and state) law".They're at the heart of the Democratic education reform agenda" under Obama's destructive Race to the Top agenda. It follows Bush's No Child Left Behind.

Both plan public education's destruction. At stake is commodifying it, handing it to corporate predators, and making it another business profit center. Doing so assures destroying the futures of thousands of Chicago kids and millions across America.

Go along union bosses should be fired, hung in effigy, then out to dry like they're doing to parents and children.

"Don't let this arc of history get lost in all the red shirts and red-meat speeches." Tribune bosses only care for bottom line priorities like profiteers they represent. 

Kids are to be exploited for profit, not taught. That's the bottom line of this struggle. Reform is code language for sellout. Teachers, parents and kids don't have a chance if union bosses betray them for their own self-interest. All signs point that way.

They'll claim success to hide failure and betrayal. They'll say they got the best deal possible. At issue is will teachers buy it? How will parents react once they learn they are their children were scammed?
