* Gov. Rauner took reporters’ questions today on what he thinks about a possible CTU strike (see below), why he signed the ACLU-backed bill that restricted police “stop and frisk” practices (he had a pretty thoughtful response, but no mention was made of Donald Trump’s criticism); his thoughts on shootings on Chicago expressways (they’re spilling over, he said, from Chicago’s heavy violence, and then found a way to bring it all back to his Turnaround Agenda); changes in Medicaid policy for childrens’ flu shots so close to flu season (he didn’t know about it); whether his work with African-American lawmakers on criminal justice reforms gives him a wedge he can use against Speaker Madigan (he repeated his claim that he’s meeting with people individually and is hearing positive things); and his thoughts on Chicago State University’s ouster of its president (nothing all that new).

    So the Turnaround Agenda (whatever it is these days) will reverse decades-long trends in global manufacturing and assuage Chicago violence?

    How’s it on tobacco stains?

    At seven minutes in someone asks about Vaccinations, as the Governor yesterday got one and was encouraging folks to get them. Saturday October 1st, nearly 200,000 children in Illinois will no longer qualify for free vaccines. As the Governor explains, these Turnaround agenda items are to benefit everyone in the State. I hope the families who are loosing this benefit can figure out how this benefits them. If poor folks want their kids in public schools they have to pay for Government mandated vaccination themselves.

    If the teachers do go on strike, I believe they should not be paid. Unfortunately any days missed get made up at the end of the year, so there is zero downside to striking from a compensation perspective.

    The vaccine issue is a big one for a lot of people. The change goes into effect October 1st. I’m not sure if the new guidelines or reimbursement rates are established or if the rates will be at a level high enough providers can afford to offer them.

    =If the teachers do go on strike, I believe they should not be paid. Unfortunately any days missed get made up at the end of the year, so there is zero downside to striking from a compensation perspective.=

    Why would the teachers be paid for days they didn’t work or be unpaid for days they did work. All days do not need to be made up. CPS is about 10 days longer than the state minimum and it would save them money.
