“The Five”: Teacher Unions Redefined Teaching “As Selfish and Lazy”

Greg Gutfeld and his co-hosts exposed the damage done by teacher unions in the age of distance learning on Friday on “The Five.”

“Kat Timpf… made this point last night: Teacher unions have succeeded in taking one of the most beloved professions and redefining it as selfish and lazy,” Gutfeld said. “… All of us in our generations loved our teachers.… And this system and the unions destroyed the image of the teacher [and] turned the classroom into a supervised prison. “


Chicago Public Schools canceled classes Friday for the third day in a row due to a dispute with the teachers’ union over distance learning and COVID safety protocols. Over 300,000 public school students – “[s]some are hungry, others unsupervised “- have not been to class, said co-host Geraldo Rivera.

“So now it’s a crisis… that America shouldn’t let go,” Gutfeld said. “We should fire people. It’s time to take the money out of the system, to start supporting parents. Give them the money so that they can make the best education choices, be it the choice of school, home schooling, the Peloton model. That’s the the only way to make it better is to introduce competition. But unions hate competition because it means they have to take off the pajamas , put on the clothes and go to work. “

Rivera reported the results of a survey which found that 48% of teachers admitted to considering leaving the profession in the past month.

“Those teachers – what, half of them thought about quitting? Okay,” said co-host Dagen McDowell. “We have to blow up the whole system. Quit. Find a job that, when you don’t show up for work, they’ll fire you a–.”

All was not dark for co-host Martha MacCallum.

“… [W]What I find really encouraging here is that there have been teachers who have turned the tide, overthrown the union, and they said, ‘I’m showing up anyway,’ “she said.


“They spend way too much money in the Chicago public school system for every child,” she concluded. “It obviously doesn’t work because you can spend a lot less in Catholic schools and other schools, charter schools, and get a lot more for your money.”
