Chicago School Board


Recommended Posts

Voted unanimously to remove police from the schools. People applauding the move want their SRO budget to go to culinary arts and nursing programs. Which will be good because we will need people to feed all the news people and treat the injured and dying when they have their next gang fight or mass school shooting.

I don't have empathy for these cities anymore, they deserve every moment of pain they get.

If you think police presence is required in schools you must be too dim to realize your society has already collapsed. Move to Gaza or Sudan where it's safer.

I don't think they should be in every school, but some schools have problems with drugs, guns, knives, and gangs, both inside the school and from neighbouring schools.  Chicago has problems with these things.  It's also a problem to a lesser extent in some urban Canadian schools, like in parts of Toronto.

Teachers and vice principals have to deal with these things, and it's not exactly in their wheelhouse.  If there's criminal activity known to be happening in schools then they shouldn't be immune, and it protects the good kids.

Last year, I was in Chicago. First time.

Like Toronto, on a lake/ocean, it is three-sided. (In Chicago, I could walk to the water. Toronto has an expressway.)

It didn't used to be when conservatives were in charge. Kids sat up straight and paid attention or got detention, and then yelled at by their parents. Now they curse out the teacher and getin fights in classrooms, and there isn't a thing the teacher can do about it. They're not even allowed to touch them, even to break up a fight. And you better believe the students know it, too.

Almost everyone who wants police removed from schools has no kids in those schools. Or else they do, but it's THEIR kids who terrorize the rest of the students and tell the teachers to F off. And when the school calls they tell the school to F off too, and call them racists to boot. 

Glen Loury went to school in South Chicago back in the sixties and talks about how good they were then. And now they're shit. Thomas Sowell says the same thing about the public schools he attended in Harlem in the 50s, and how terrible they are today. Both school boards spend a ton of money and get miserable results. Why? Because they're controlled by the Left, and operate under rules established by the Left.
