79% of Chicago 8th Graders Not Proficient in Reading
Okay, let’s cut through the crap cake. The teachers unions do not give a corpse fart about “the children.” And when they try and invoke “the children.” spit in their faces, big meaty ones. They are despicable liars. The left is solely responsible for the slide of this country into the shitter.
Seventy-nine percent of the 8th graders in the Chicago Public Schools are not grade-level proficient in reading, according to the U.S. Department of Education, and 80 percent are not grade-level proficient in math.
Chicago public school teachers went on strike on Monday and one of the major issues behind the strike is a new system Chicago plans to use for evaluating public school teachers in which student improvement on standardized tests will count for 40 percent of a teacher’s evaluation.
