It is nice to see that some teachers are starting to fight back against the war being waged against them.

Every teacher in this nation should join them.

If they don't they will end up in the same sorry state that Oklahoma has created for teachers, and the children here.

We now have no tenor, no seniority, are 49th in teacher salaries and 50th in per student spending on education. The state board of education has been stripped of all power and the head of the OK state Department of Education is a crony hired to dismantle the education system in Oklahoma in favor of charter schools and private schools for profit. (Baressi) who has been given dictator like power over the whole state.

Good luck Chicago, you do not want to be like us.
