Sounds good to me. Its clear that this strike isn't about pay, its about the teachers not wanting to be held accountable, and in Chicago there are probably more than a few teachers who should be flipping burgers.

If they don't want to be judged objectively by value-added improvement in standardized tests, then the leaders of the school should be able to fire them at will. Think you were fired unfairly because the boss didn't like you? Too bad, get in line with the rest of working america.
