CHICAGO – On the first day of the Chicago teachers Union strike, the union had the gall to use student protesters as props in its fight for bigger raises, better benefits and less accountability.

Not surprisingly, at least some of the student protesters had no idea why they were there or what they were protesting. These kids simply look up to their teachers and assume they are right about everything, and the union is willing to exploit their naiveté for its own purposes.

One student, when asked what his sign meant, replied that he didn’t know and “some lady” gave it to him.  Check out the video below for more on this topic.
