    Let the State take it over and file BANKRUPTCY......It's the only option. Your already 1 billion in the hole. There is NO WAY OUT OF THIS. Taxpayers can no longer foot the bill for the failure we call "CPS". There is no other way....Just how much are we expected to pay for a failure? Did they all really become teachers to become rich? Then they choose the wrong profession......Complaining about their paychecks when we still have failing schools, they have some nerve. We the taxpayers can no longer foot their bill and many refuse too. Enough is enough. BANKRUPTCY!

    That is a pretty pure reason. What has the CTU ever done for the city or the students. Their only goal is what every union's goal is - more money and benefits for the members and more money and power for the union officers. They hand out political donations to the political candidates that use that money to get elected and then those same politicians negotiate fat contracts for the CTU and outlandish pension maneuvers to benefit the CTU donors. Whether you like Rauner or republicans, one thing is for certain, the democrats have been in control of the city for decades and look where it has us.
