Strike for America: How Teacher Unions Influenced the U.S. Public School System

morningamp:

The Chicago Teachers’ Union strike in fall of 2012 made national news as it pitted the public school teachers against the mayor and a CPS Board that wanted to change classroom sizes, raise structures, and the health care plan among other things. A new book from Jacobin Press recounts the drama and looks at how the strike has influenced other actions in the US public education.

The IHSA Disqualified Homewood-Flossmoor Coach and Players for Recruitment
44 plays

morningamp:

Yesterday just hours before the state playoff tournament was set to begin, the Homewood- Flossmoor basketball team was eliminated from the tournament because their head coach had illegally recruited players. The IHSA been trying to strike a deal with the team by offering 6 players the opportunity to stay and play in the tournament while the coach and the 11 players eliminated could not play. One of the eliminated players filed a restraining order that would have allowed the team to keep competing in the playoffs, claiming that the parents and the players were unaware of these eligibility requirements. On the flipside, the team did have more training time during the offseason from other teams, so did the recruiting even matter? The AMp hosts Brian Babylon and Molly Adams along with Dr. Coya Paz discussed this story and explored further into the issue of gentrification.

UPDATE on 'The NATO 3': Terrorists or Angry Drunks?
46 plays

morningamp:

As a follow up from last week’s discussion, the men being prosecuted in NATO 3 trial are being tried under Illinois’ rarely used anti-terror law, but critics of the trial are finding it hard to swallow that the three were capable of creating the kind of chaos the prosecution alleges they were planning. The AMp hosts Brian Babylon and Molly Adams discussed the new evidence presented by the Prosecution of alleged Facebook messages that contained little evidence of their plot and why it is risky to continue this trial with terrorism laws that have never been used in Cook County before on a trial with too many gray areas.

Pope Fiction: Are the Seemingly Awesome Actions of the Pope Real or PR Fiction?
38 plays

morningamp:

Since the beginning of his Papacy in March, Pope Francis has made international headlines with his unconventional messages of hope and compassion for the poor. He’s been praised as the key to progress for the Catholic Church while exploding the heads of conservative critics who have labeled him a Marxist. Graziano Marcheschi, executive director of ministry at Saint Xavier University, talked with Morning AMp hosts Molly Adams and Brian Babylon about whether or not this shift in the Catholic church is legitimate or a PR stunt.

More than a thousand people gathered Tuesday evening for the “Take Back Chicago” rally and town hall meeting at the University of Illinois at Chicago Forum. Members of various community organizations, activists and unions called attention to such issues as the minimum wage, affordable housing, a fair tax system, school closures and healthcare. Individuals asked their state representatives and local aldermen, several of whom were present, as well as Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn, to commit to tackling these issues and improving the quality of life for working families.
