Where Are The Layoffs?

Let's see some staffing cuts Groot:

  • Chicago Public Schools enrollment plummeted by 15,000 students this fall compared to last year, the largest single-year drop in more than two decades, according to records released by the school system Friday.

    Officials called the decrease from 355,000 students to 340,000 — a 4% drop — a “crisis” that was largely driven by a significant decline in new families enrolling in preschool programs and elementary schools.

    The district released the enrollment figures, calculated on the 20th day of the school year in late September, along with a news release confirming most CPS students will remain in remote learning at the start of the second quarter of the academic year next month, with the “goal” of preschool and special education cluster programs returning to classrooms.

We don't have the CPS staffing numbers, but a 4% drop should mean a 4% cut in costs. Even with an unrealistic 30 students per, that's 500 less classrooms.

Come on Groot - you are so eager to wield the budget cutting axe a few days ago. This is the ultimate "gimme" of "gimmes." Stuff it in Sharkey's face. You need a good headline after this week.

So many people are leaving CPS because they are sick of the vile hate group The CTU! People do not want their kids in such a terrible environment which is CPS. People want their kids to attend school not a one sided hating social brainwashing filled with hate and division. We pulled our 3 kids out and sent them to a normal school.

Just follow the dollah.

The shrinkage in 'customers' will result in less tribute to the whoredom.

Just like labeling a guy wiped out in a motorcycle wreak in Daytona is a china virus victim.

Various governments run by idiots [think blue state] take your money and pay up demofuck unions and gubment dollahs per case stipends to 'medicare for all' scumbag 'providers' declaring any dead body a kovid case. And have you considered the "Settlements" money laundering transfers?

Hunter Biden is only a small case.

Gee, big drop in enrollment=lesser children, means lees teachers needed! The drop is a complete result of parents pulling their kids out of CPS due to the bullshit that the whining pussy teachers cant be in a classroom...C'mon Groot, time to cut the strings with Sharkey, if you have the guts.

Every time a bell rings an angel is supposed to get their wings. But, every time the CPS bell rings another attorney gets hired in CPS Law and for other positions at one of the CPS Networks or on Madison Ave.

If Mayor Paddlefoot is listening, take this advice and replace Joseph Moriarty in CPS Law (Burke's guy) and replace him with somebody nobody sent.

The teachers union has groot by her little man drawers. She is a radical progressive. An angry, minority, lesbian communist. She is a member of the most vile hate group in existence right now. The teachers union is the most radical, publicly funded brainwashing institution. These crazy eyed teachers need to be put in check, but it won't happen with these democrats in charge. We're in a fight to save our society and we're losing. You won't recognize this country in a few years, if Bidet wins, they'll begin finalizing the plan Rush Limbaugh said many years ago that they had. IRA's, 401K's and all private retirement savings will be seized by the government and you'll get a government backed annuity. There's like what? $20 Trillion or more in our hands? All they need to do is pass a law and it's a done deal.

15000/40[not the real classroom size but..]= 375. That is 375 fewer classrooms than 375 fewer teachers and or teaching assistants that are needed. Starting 1st-year teacher pay is $41,000. Soooo $41000 x 375= $15,375,000. You shouldn't be paying people for doing nothing! They aren't firemen! [just kidding guys]. Having no one to teach no rooms to fill, or clean either. Those 'free' meals don't need them either. The savings to the city could be over $20 million.

Her budget will contain a 9.5% increase for CPS. One reason is teacher bonus for on line learning issues $2000-5000 per teacher. Including art, music and PE teachers. You won’t believe the administrator deals. No cuts at all despite fewer students.

I am on the local school council and the main problem with CPS is not the teachers. The problem with CPS is all the extra crap that cost taxpayers millions. Start with kindergarten and preschool, they are not required so CPS should charge for this service but I believe it should just be eliminated. Bus service is not required and costs millions. Police officers in schools should be eliminated. Food service should be eliminated. Safe passage workers should be eliminated. What Governor Fat Ass should do is have a charitable foundation, with his family members, and they could pay for all those services and still leave the toilets in the buildings.
Here is an example of the waste. The second highest paid employee at our school use to teach special education children at another school. We have no special education at our school but she was still put here and now she doesn’t teach anyone but because of her title, she is the only person who can write up the forms for children who need accommodations. For example, little Johnny is said to be bi-polar so he needs extra time to finish tests or homework. This employee then writes up the IEP or 504 (These are the forms used to give children accommodations). So if you think this is a waste of money, it gets better. The employee now gets extra pay for each form she fills out. So what do you think this employee wants to do? You are right, fill out as many forms as possible. It gets better. She feels five children at the school need one-on-one aides. I have met the children and all they really need is some discipline at home but because they are problems at the school they must have some kind of medical condition. Now you bring in the school counselor and social worker, yes you pay for them too, and they write up the form saying the child needs the one-on-one aide. So CPS hires five extra people to watch these five children every day. So we have five employees who get paid to tell the children “No.” You might think that this “Special Ed Teacher” and “Counselor” could fill in if another teacher is missing since they really go days with nothing to do. You would be wrong. The school hires a sub to take over the class.
Did you also know that CPS has a large warehouse full of furniture and equipment from closed schools but does not require schools to use this stuff before buying new stuff.
Did you also know schools buy online license fees for school books and then also buy the physical books. Each online license cost about $120 and books cost about $80 each. That $200 per student for one class.
I can probably write a book on all the waste at our school but I do want you to know that the vast majority of teachers at my school support the police and work hard at their job and they get the same kind of support from parents and CPS as we do on our job, which is very little. They also disagree with 98% of what comes out of their union. The vast majority of police officers are good people who do their job and I feel the vast majority of teachers are the same.

51% of my property taxes go to the schools. Haven't had a kid in there for 8 years. I know teachers that stay home,don't go to the schools but yet have no issues going out. And then have the nerve to want hazard pay for an empty classroom. And now their union is saying in person learning would be bad even though the experts say the kids need to be back for their social well being. Fuck them.

At 7 billion budget with the 340,000 students isn’t that like 20,000 a student? Talk about if you could give that to the student for choice of a school. It would be better than the indoctrination Chicago does to kids brains.
Something else not sure how true but do the school district pay somewhere close to a million in protection costs? So is that not a saving too

Larry Lightloafer is owned by the teachers, so don't expect anything meaningful.

The best thing to do is stick a thumb in the Democrats eye by voting for Obrien and every other non-Dem on the ballot. And let your alderman know with that vote in your ward that the democrats don't own your vote.

If this Democommie Newman gets Lipinski's seat, kiss the southside goodbye. She'll destroy the schools with the bullshit blame America curriculum, and property values down the drain. Beverly will look like Country Club Hills.

So if the CPS spends about 13K per student, that means a savings of about $200 million dollars. Next year's budget should be that much less, meaning the taxpayers should see a decrease in their bills. If the state exit migration trend continues, there will be even less enrollments in the following years, meaning less need for money. Gov. Fat ass and the rest of the dems will still cry about being "underfunded" and make up some reason to increase taxes anyway.

And what da phuck is their budget?
To teach John Burge BAD - the 1619 story - Sex Education Transgenderism -
Systemic Racism -
At the cost to taxpayers of $22,647.06 ANNUALLY per child
So for a class of 30 kids.......that’s $679,411.77 per classroom cost........
To get a LOW QUALITY, inadequate education where students can barely
READ, WRITE, DO MATH or pass any grade-equivalency exam......
Eighth graders with barely 4th grade skills!
Something very wrong here!
And I won’t even mention the fact that 70-80% of student families are NON CONTRIBUTORS TO THE TAX BASE!

Think about it. You can send your kid to a school that is known for its vocal, Marxist teachers or you can keep them home and have them get their diploma online.
My youngest is 16, he will be done with online school this year and he will be starting an HVAC apprenticeship. Instead of college, he will be earning. He might go to college later but he would rather join the trades and make money.
His brother graduated on the Dean's list with a Business degree. He is going over to the trades now because he can't find a decent job with his degree. Why did he get a degree? Because every teacher he had convinced him that he needed a degree to make money.

With enrollment being down, so does the attendance and so goes the State funding. I’ll bet $2 that the Annual head count funding requirements will be either extended, manipulated or tossed out altogether...due to the challenging times in this global pandemic.

With all the free WiFi’s and laptops out there, shortened stay at home work schedules, there’s no need to pay Full Time a real world of regular 9 to 5’ers. For instance...Bidness hours at the muffler shop are the same with or without cars on the rack (replacing stolt catalatic’ converters), they SHOW UP - In Person, do they’ job, clock out when the pending jobs are done. There’s no need to pay for the extra help sitting idle around. Going home early has no effect on benefits.

The Covid and Budget.
I’d settle if that no-quibble CPS tax levy is waived on Second Installment of my tax bill.
A poorly run and wasteful CPS is nothing new, it’s probably why they didn’t like Paul Vallas much when he came up with sensible reforms. It’s why Larri doesn’t care for him either.
And By the Way...Good Move to JCat for bringing Paul Vallas into the FOP negotiations. Well done.
