Emanuel will announce a new 7 hour school day today - Union and Teachers have not approved this - Parents claim longer school day report is flawed

Chicago Public Schools fudged longer school day report - Parent groups: Data for longer school day doesn’t add up - Rahm will annouce 7 hour school day to avoid answering questions about this fudged report

A coalition of 16 parent groups Monday demanded a meeting with Mayor Rahm Emanuel to go over the real research on a 7 1/2-hour school day, and not the “misinformation” they charged district officials with spreading.

“They are either misinformed or deliberately misleading the public,’’ said Jonathan Goldman of the new Chicago Parents for Quality Education coalition.

“In either case, that’s not how we should be deciding public policy, especially when it comes to our children.’’

Goldman said he and other parents have analyzed longer day studies listed on the Chicago Public School website as supporting Emanuel’s call for a 7 1/2 hour school day, and they are, at best, “mixed.’’

In fact, when the Sun-Times called the author of one analysis of 15 studies cited by CPS as proof that longer school days work, Erika Patall of the University of Texas said the evidence the studies cited was “weak’’ and their conclusions were “very tentative” because “a good deal of the research does not rule out something other than time causing the improvement.’’

Parents also questioned CPS contentions that the system needed a 7.5 hour school day to get “on par with other districts.’’ CPS officials have said their numbers were based on weekly instructional minutes in a National Center for Education Statistics chart, multiplied out annually.

NEGOTIATIONS? RAHM DOESN'T NEED STUPID NEGOTIATIONS.

Rham figures if they are in school longer it,s less time for them to be out committing acts of violence.His plan will fail.

Every fucking teacher should just get up and leave when they normally would. Leave all those fucking bastard ghetto spawn sitting there unattended. If it wasn't negotiated into a contract, then Rahm can suck a dick or come babysit the savages himself.

What say you, CTU? Have you found your balls since Rahm stuck it in your ass once already? Or are you just gonna roll over and invite another thick, veiny cock into your collective ass once again, this time without any lube or spit? As a parent of 3 CPS students, I call on Karen Lewis and the entire CTU to either walk out the first day this is implemented, or to strike a week or two into the new school year this September. Bring this rotten cocksucker and all his knowing participant henchmen to their knees.

If Rahm had his way the CTU would all be sent to re-education camps (aka gulags or concentration camps)until they came around to his way of thinking. The parents would then be next or their children would just be taken away.

Inside of every so called liberal is a Joe Stalin communist that thinks their ways are best and you better conform or off to the camps.

What makes him even more contemptable is that he is allegedly a Jew but he wouldn't think twice about sending anyone to a camp.

Does anyone honestly believe a nigger or spic will be able to learn any differently or retain any knowledge if they were in school for longer hours each day? It all starts at home with the parents!

Grew up in the suburbs and my school days were always 7 to 7 1/2 hours. I don't get why parents and teachers are complaining.

Nothing is good or bad until compared to something else...in this case the CPS school day is one of the shortest around !! I have come to believe that the teachers union instructs their members to CONSTANTLY complain and ALWAYS say how many more hours a day you really work blah blah blah....newsflash teachers EVERYONE works long hours but not everyone gets to have their summers off !!

I woulda had more than 3 kids, only I stuck to fucking your wife in her fat ass and then blasting my population yogurt down her willing throat.

Might this explanation be what you expected? Disgusting enough for your pansy-ass?

You WISH you could be like me, trust that. Ask your old lady for a synopsis of the time we spend together for pointers on being like Aldo.
