  • Illinois Govr does not care about schooling of poor kids – President of American Teacher Federation.

    As another school year begins, a thousand teachers in Chicago’s inner city school district have been laid off. The Chicago Teacher’s Union responded in a statement saying that layoffs only weaken schools and put students at a disadvantage and that the layoffs are targeted at under-performing schools with a high percentage of minority students. Randi Weingarten, President of the American Federation of Teachers states that “With the current governor, just like in Indiana just like in Michigan, they don’t care about kids in the city.” Weingarten explains that a school’s funding is based on the property taxes of that area and that the lack of funding is a civil rights issue.

Today there are over 126 Federal antipoverty programs and in constant dollars, Federal spending has risen from $107 billion to $688 billion – or 640%. Total government spending has ballooned to $21,000 for every person below the poverty level in America, or $63,339 for a family of three. Since the war on poverty began, $19 trillion dollars have been spent ending poverty, but the poverty rate has increased. What is the Truth About Welfare?

St. Louis, Missouri Over 14% of St. Louis’ population is living below the poverty line. Out of 100,000 residents, every year 35.3 are murdered, which ranks it as one of America’s most dangerous cities too. 11. Reno, Nevada Reno was the gambling capital of the US until Las Vegas was developed and “The Biggest Little City in the World” has been in economic decline ever since. Reno experiences nearly 39 annual crimes per 1,000 residents. 10. Modesto, California Despite being home to the largest winery in the world, the unemployment rate was nearly 13% in 2014. Modesto ranks number one in the country for car theft and out of 200,000 residents, up to 10,000 are reported to be gang members. 9. Oakland, California The economy in Oakland is strong with a good median household income. ($51,683.)

This includes stigma surrounding formerly incarcerated individuals, people of color, and young people. Job training and other programs play a vital role in assisting those who face such barriers, but these programs are threatened by looming budget cuts. Many Chicagoans also find themselves the victim of predatory lending practices and residents cited the lack of parks and recreation areas for young people in poor neighborhoods.
