Mayor Rahm Emanuel's Personal Fluffer Forrest Claypool - Letter to the Editor from Forrest Claypool: CPS teachers' salaries

Even given Chicago Public Schools' well-known financial challenges, we are committed to paying teachers a competitive and generous salary.

A story in Sunday's Tribune reported that CPS' average teacher salary is $69,000, citing figures from the Illinois State Board of Education. But CPS figures show the average for teachers' salaries is $73,853 and our median salary — half of teachers make more and half of teachers make less — is $77,885.

The deal that we reached with CTU leadership in January would have secured healthy raises and increased that base salary by an additional 14 percent on average. This means that CPS would provide a raise that increases our average salary considerably — giving teachers a raise that they deserve, for the hard work that they have done and the remarkable results Chicago students are achieving.

When the dust settles from the ongoing contract negotiations, CPS and the Chicago Teachers Union's leadership will have inked a deal that follows this formula: pays Chicago teachers more, secures their pensions, treats taxpayers fairly and, most important, gives our students a strong education to keep making progress.

After we have finalized a contract, it will become critical to work together to reform education funding in Illinois, the worst state in the country for funding the education of low-income students — the very students who need their state's support the most.

This is precisely why the mayor and CPS worked tirelessly in the last year to address the unjust funding system that exists in Illinois and secure more than $600 million in additional resources from Springfield — and Chicago taxpayers.

Unfortunately, all of that funding has gone to pay for the $733 million annual teacher pension payment this year. CPS is alone in the state in its obligation to make this payment; other districts have the luxury of the state paying their teacher pension contributions so they don't have to choose between pensions, raises and classrooms.

In the long run, the most important piece of the puzzle is holding the state accountable to its constitutional promise to deliver on the primary responsibility for supporting an equitable education for all its students.
— Forrest Claypool, Chief Executive Officer, Chicago Public Schools

They alway claim this asshole Cesspool is such a great manager but he has fucked up every department he has ever managed. Don't even bring up the park district because I know people who were there when he made Daley's friends filthy rich with the fence contracts.

Claypool is crazy like a fox. He watches in the dark and his teeth are the size of tombstones. His skin is leathery like a whisper of sin. He has killed thousands in his days of rage. He eats the souls of men.

In the long run, the solution is that if you want a pension, YOU fund it 100%. Leave the fucking taxpayers out of it. If you feel you can make a better return on your investment than the entity investing it - move it to a self-managed 401(k), and YOU assume all the risk of self-managing. But still, leave the fucking taxpayers out of it.

No more taxpayer-funded pensions for anyone. And teachers that go on strike ought to be treated like the economic terrorists they act like - fire the lot of them, hire new. If the bitches block the sidewalks or street - ARREST THEM, charge with economic terrorism.

Fuck this crap - ends now.

Karen Lewis wants Rahm to tongue her asshole and suck her clit. I don't think he would do it, but Shave would go down for seconds. Her pussy lips remind him of Folos beef.

Wow. Teachers make 70K per year. I wonder how much Claypool makes. He's been on the city payroll as an "advisor" for years.

Fuck the NFL said...

70k a year to coddle niggers all day?...holy fuck no wonder Chicago is fucked. Us coppers get 80k to do the same thing but our bodies take way more of a beating. Go on strike. I don't want to wake up early any more till the MLB postseason is over.

I was asleep in my squad behind a school and Claypool caught me in person. He dropped his pants and said how do we make this go away. I arrested him for indecent exposure and took him downtown. I was a rookie and didn't know who he was. They let him go and told me to drive him back. I pegged him in the back of the head with a stapler and ran away instead. We've had a vendetta ever since.

If we didnt have any school for blacks think of the savings. They dont learn anyway so it seems the entire purpose of school is to justify salaries for employees.....teachers and janitors especially. Shutdown all schools in non white areas and just pay the employees. No need to buy books or even have buildings. Keep the real schools in Asian and white areas where students actually attend and learn something. Millions in savings and that can be used to arrest and imprison the blacks when they act in their usual manner
