An interesting contrast: New Jersey vs. Chicago
New Jersey school districts are finding ways to keep jobs even with receiving less state aid (ht, JammieWearingFool). Contrast THAT with the teachers union in Chicago and a district that is having to BORROW (against what equity, one might ask) $800 million because they've bowed down to the wishes of the union too often. With the familiar cries of 'save our schools' and 'children first', the unions take to the lines to protest. Instead of 'save our schools', they should just tell the truth and yell 'save our pay raises'.
