Apparently the Occupy Movement’s pledge of solidarity wasn’t enough for some Chicago public school teachers. They’ve got their eyes on younger, more impressionable supporters — their students.
Chicago Teachers Union members are urging kids to support their cause by joining strikers on the picket line, according to some students on Twitter. But the students appear less than enthusiastic about the wildly inappropriate attempt to make a teachable moment out of a hostile progressive political fight. Evidently sleep takes priority over indoctrination.

One teacher allegedly resorted to bribery.

Keep it classy, CTU members. Do Chicago parents know teachers are coercing their kids into joining labor bullies in their left-wing temper tantrum?
