If the latest pamphlet published by the “Teachers for Social Justice” group in Chicago was written by a Chicago Public Schools teacher, it might help explain why student performance has been so dismal. Teachers for Social Justice, a collective of “radical” educators and union apologists, recently released what it calls a “popular education piece.” It amounts to a 10-page diatribe attacking recent school closures in the city, school choice and Mayor Rahm Emanuel. The only problem is this document is riddled with spelling and grammatical errors. Perhaps the teachers of Chicago spend too much time worrying about politics and not enough time brushing up on their own academic skills. Here are a few examples of butchered statements from the pamphlet. “Call Mayor’s office and demand him (sic) to return the TIF money to our schools.”
