In Ottawa, Illinois schools superintendent John Harrison committed suicide over the weekend. Ottawa is south west of Chicago in LaSalle County.
The school is suffering a teachers unions trike at this time, but it isn’t known if the strike and controversy is connected to the suicide.
One interesting part of the report on the CBS News site, though, showed one aspect of today’s teachers unions that is galling.
Teachers went on strike Sept. 30. They’re objecting to a school board offer that would require them to chip in for family health insurance coverage. About 1,600 students attend the school.
Seriously? These teachers think they shouldn’t have to pay any part of their own health insurance coverage? I guess we shouldn’t expect teachers to be like everyone one else in the country, eh? Naturally these greedy unions think teachers should get free healthcare all paid for by the taxpayer!
At this point these greedy, anti-student teachers unions are more like criminal syndicates than organizations with the interests of the people at heart!
