Up-to-date textbooks are essential. So are manageable class sizes. Striking teachers aren't "aliens dropped among us, selfish and dumb and duped by their union bosses. They're hardworking Chicagoans"" They take great pride in their work.

They want and deserve "schools they can believe in and be proud of, schools where they can do their job right. They want it for themselves and for their students."

Now the part they won't like. "They have to call of this strike." It's baked in the cake, of course. Unless grassroots displeasure balks its sellout terms, classes will resume Monday.

"They've already gained" enough, said the Sun Times. "There are serious doubts as to whether the city can even afford" concessions made.

What's lost matters most. No matter. The "city must hold the line""

"As we said, this is an editorial sure to please almost no one".we believe this strike is wrong."

Sun Times editorial writers don't care about what's most important. Nor do Tribune bosses. Neither mentioned public education, its importance, and how Emanuel plans destroying a societal bedrock.

Remember those teachers "who made us what we are today," said the Sun Times. At the same time, it forgot what's most important and why it matters.
