Teachers’ Strike in Chicago Tests Mayor and Union - NYTimes.com:
"Kelly Farrell, a kindergarten teacher at Higgins Elementary on the city’s South Side, said her class had so many pupils that she did not even have enough seats for them all. “They are 5 years old,” she said. “They want their teacher’s attention, and there is one of me and 43 of them.”"
It's not always about money...but it's a fact that taxpayers don't want to buy new classrooms. They don't want to buy new books. They don't want to buy paper and pencils. They don't want to buy computers and software. But they do want their children educated. So I guess it is about money and it's also true that you get what you pay for.
