On today’s show Sam and Rick Perlstein discussed the Teacher’s strike happening right now in Chicago. Rick explained how effective the Chicago Teacher’s Union has been in gaining public support, the corporate special interests funding the “education reform” movement and how Rahm Emanuel’s disdain for unions is driving Chicago politics. Sam focused on the ideological nature of the attack on public schools and Rick said that universal education has always been vital to our economic societal success.
