I hope they go on strike, and I hope people decide, finally, teachers are not in general their children's Friends.

"Because listen to Lori light what she's the mayor of Chicago, she's furious as she should be, by the way, this is the one the one thing I've maintained all along, you can not shut a society down for this. You need to learn to live with it while the Chicago teacher's union just walked off the job. Third largest school district in the country, and this is what the Democrat mayor has to say. And to be clear, what the Chicago teachers union did was an illegal walkout. They abandoned their posts and they abandoned kids and their families. We are working diligently every single day at the bargaining table to narrow the differences and they get a deal done. My team has been working every single day. They're back at it again.

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot Blames Union Leaders for ‘Chaotic Conduct’
"Okay, let me play for you the most important things that happen yet. Chicago school, teachers went out on strike, the mayor of Chicago, Lori Lightfoot said this. Cut 16. Enough is enough. We are standing firm and we are going to fight to get our kids back in person learning. Period, full stop. I hope it's period full stop. I don't believe her. She hasn't issued the patco threat that Ronald Reagan did. Do your job or lose your job? Come to work or don't ever come back to her. Lori Lightfoot only said, we're gonna fight for that. She did not threaten the teachers with discharge. Again, play it. Cut number 16. Enough is enough. We are standing firm and we are going to fight to get our kids back in person learning. Period, full stop. All right, I hope that's correct. Guy Benson, who's on special report with Brett Bayer last night, expanded on the silver lining to the Chicago teacher union strike. Cut number 15. To go to have the president go to Chicago and stand by Chicago mayor Lori Lightfoot. Some people are saying, maybe that is a good thing for him to do. All right, for him to say something as opposed to having other folks say, oh, the president's been clear. He'd like to see schools open. Stand up, mister president. To these political allies of yours and tell them to get back into classrooms and stop harming children. Look, if you did that, that'd be good. I would give him one cheer, not two or three. Same with mayor lightfoot. I'm glad some Democrats are finally saying these things. The problem is these are the politicians who have coddled and indulged and enabled exactly these types of really abuses for the last year and a half flying in the face of science. These teachers unions have learned that they can get away with these things and to belatedly try to catch up to public opinion and finally acknowledge the science here is better late than never, but still not particularly impressive, I would say. That's the issue that Democrats are facing. The one silver lining Brett in my view, and it's hard to find one because kids are hurting as they have been for two years, is that some of the things that conservatives have been saying about teachers unions and school choice have basically been amplified playing out in a two year long infomercial, and this is extremely high profile and maybe some parents and some leaders will wake up.

And when it comes to following the money, you know, I kind of stumbled on Overboard, really watching press Thomas of politician saucing Chicago Teachers union talking points, so I started to search for how much money politicians were getting from. The Chicago teachers Do you and political action Committee and just from the video alone, it turns up But $340,126 and independent and I won't tweet about it.

It was $795,796 from the Political Action Committee, and I don't even count the other political action committees or the Where you get the vory So, uh, it was very interesting to see you know how the teacher was lobbying, um, with their strike threats. Theo, you know, against reopening from In person learning was that they were calling people who you know they've written checks to to stand up in solidarity.

So Aaron, these navigation centers have become one model of how the city is tackling its homelessness crisis in the city, says these centers take a more holistic approach to housing people. That's right. Yeah Navigation centers are essentially homeless shelters that offer services on site. They have lower barriers to entry so folks can bring their pets in. They can cohabitate with partners often times If you were curfews and set meal times, so it's just easier for people to access those services and at this particular center. There will also be opportunities for job training and for folks to continue their education. These young people who are between 18 and 24, they make up about 14% of the city's homeless population. What issues does this group have that necessitates the need for a separate location from older adults. Studies have shown that if you separate out younger adults from older adults within homeless shelters that that can lead to better outcomes, So this is really about a preventative measure to ensure that young people are not becoming chronically homeless. And it's also part of a campaign that Mayor London Breed launched in 2018, which has some city money in it, But it's mostly funded through philanthropic donations, and that will help folks in the center access rental.
